  • 2. Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift (1667-1745) Gulliver’s Travels (1726, amended 1735), officially Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World, is both a satire on human nature and a parody of the “travelers’ tales” literary sub-genre. It is Swift’s most celebrated work, as well as one of the indisputable classics of English literature. The book became tremendously popular as soon as it was published (John Gay said in a 1726 letter to Swift that "it is universally read, from the cabinet council to the nursery". Since then, it has never been out of print.
