Heritage Press Edition in Slip Csae
Gulliver's Travels, or Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World, consists of four parts and was initially published in 1726. It satirizes both human nature and the "travellers' tales" literary subgenre. It is Swift's best known full-length work, and a classic of English literature. Swift claimed that he wrote Gulliver's Travels "to vex the world rather than divert it". The book was an immediate success. John Gay remarked "It is universally read, from the cabinet council to the nursery."
