Gullivers Travels is a four-part satirical work by Anglo-Irish writer and clergyman Jonathan Swift, published anonymously in 1726. A keystone of English literature, it is one of the books that contributed to the emergence of the novel as a literary form in English. A parody of the then popular travel narrative, Gullivers Travels combines adventure with savage satire, mocking English customs and the politics of the day. It has been banned and censored for being "wicked and obscene." If you celebrate the freedom to read, this classic piece of literature is the perfect addition to your library.
