Described by George Orwell as “among the six indispensable books in world literature”, “Gulliver’s Travels” is a 1726 prose satire by the Irish writer and clergyman Jonathan Swift, satirising both human nature and the "travellers' tales" literary subgenre. Swift claimed that he wrote Gulliver's Travels "to vex the world rather than divert it".
During his travels Gulliver is captured by miniature people who wage war on each other, is sexually assaulted by giants, visits a floating island, and decides that the society of horses is better than that of his fellow man. Swift's tough, filthy and incisive satire has much to say about the state of the world today and is presented here in its unexpurgated entirety.
