Lilliput. Laputa. Brobdingnag. Houyhnhnmland. Join ship's surgeon Lemuel Gulliver on his voyage to these fantastic lands, whose inhabitants, whether minute or giant, man or beast, reveal so much about so-called civilized society and the human condition. A masterpiece of satire, this parody on the travel-memoir genre is a vivid, phantasmagorical romp with serious undertones, as Swift's irreverent wit pokes fun at the establishment.Biografía del autor:
