Gullivers Travels, original title Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World, is a four-part satirical work by Anglo-Irish author 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 its "politically sensitive references" and for being "wicked and obscene." If you celebrate the freedom to read, this classic piece of literature is the perfect addition to your library.
