  • Transcript

    • 1. By: Shohaib Class:- IX-A Roll no:-:-17
    • 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.
    • 3. The book begins with a short preamble in which Lamuel Gulliver, in the style of books of the time, gives a brief outline of his life and history before his voyages. He enjoys traveling, although it is that love of travel that is his downfall .
    • 4. During his first voyage, Gulliver is washed ashore after a shipwreck and finds himself a prisoner of a race of tiny people, less than 6 inches tall, who are inhabitants of the island country of Lilliput.
    • 5. Jonathan Swift After giving assurances of his good behavior, he is given a residence in Lilliput and becomes a favorite of the court.
    • 6. Mural depicting Gulliver surrounded by citizens of Lilliput.
