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.
