Gulliver's Travels to Lilliput & Brobdingang
By Jonathan Swift
Edited by Huw Parker (Thornes Classic Novels)
This volume contains the two most famous expeditions of Jonathan Swift's classic character Gulliver. Popular images of Gulliver tied in captivity by the minuscule Lilliputians or his visit with the towering inhabitants of Brobdingang have long been etched in the collective literary consciousness of our society. This edition brings the story behind these icons to life through the inclusion of insightful commentary into the social satire that was Swift's intention with these fantastic tales. Students, or any readers, are given a comprehensive introduction to the author and are helped throughout the text to clarify unclear sections of the language and narrative.
