Overview

In this Graphic Classics version of a major eighteenth-century satiric novel, shipwrecked voyager Gulliver is cast ashore among the tiny Lilliputians, where he seems to be a giant, then among the giant Brobdingnags, where he seems as small as a mouse. His later visits to other kingdoms include the Country of the Houyhnhms—talking horses who demonstrate to Gulliver that humans, whom they call Yahoos, are disgraceful animals. Graphic Classics are graphic novel versions of immortal novels and plays, presented in a way to help make great literary works accessible to students, and encourage boys and girls to discover the joy of reading the masterworks in their original form. Titles in this series tell absorbing, fast-paced stories dramatized with high-quality color illustrations. Each Graphic Classics title includes a thumbnail biography of the author, a list of his or her important works, a timeline of historic events that helped inspire the story, general notes, and an index. Graphic Classics titles are available in both paperback and hardcover editions.

The voyages of an eighteenth-century Englishman carry him to such strange places as Lilliput, where people are six inches tall, and Brobdingnag, a land peopled by giants. Illustrated notes throughout the text explain the historical background of the story.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Presents the complete text of Gulliver's Travels, with five critical essays from theoretical perspectives such as feminism, the new historicism, deconstructionism, and psychoanalytic criticism. Features an introduction providing biographical and historical contexts for Swift's novel, and introductions to the history, principles, and practice of each critical perspective represented. Includes a survey of critical responses to the novel, and a glossary of critical and theoretical terms. No index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From Barnes & Noble
First published in 1726, this classic work of satire presents a world gone haywire, where humans, despite their pomposity and grandiose illusions, are no better than weak and helpless fools. Lemuel Gulliver's journeys take him to Lilliput, a country whose inhabitants are no more than six inches tall; to Brobdingnag, a land of giants; to Laputa, a flying island inhabited by absent-minded people; and to the land of Houyhnhnms, where horselike creatures rule with intelligence and courtesy over repulsive humanlike Yahoos. One of literature's lasting legacies, Swift's trenchant cautionary tale is a witty, allegorical depiction of people at their worst; yet it may also be read as an enchanting, playful children's story with universal appeal.

    Not the complete ebook

    FYI, this free Google download is only Volume 2 of 2. Even though it looks like you will be getting the full book, this ebook is only the second half.

    An Unforgettable Journey

    The first time I read this novel was in high school. he story at face value can be viewed as a children's story, yet for me Swift's story dug deep and opened my eyes to a world beyond my own, and taught me to search for a sort of utopia, only one that resides within our world. Since reading Gulliver's Travel, I have gone on to college, and is now a graduate student in English Literature.I have in that period probably recommended this novel to everyone I've ever met interested in reading. It changed my life in ways I can't understand fully, but the heart and soul of Gulliver lives in me now, taking me through journeys one can only dream of.

    Not a good scan

    This version was not scanned well and put nicely into a digital format. Try looking for another version of this tale.

    Typos ? Typos. Really hard to read.

    I couldnt tell where the table of contents ended and the actual book began. Perhaps it only looks like this on my original nook?

    Very Good

    I must admit, it was a very good read. Some old fashioned terms, yes, but I think (and hope) it retained all of it's wit and charm throught the years. Overall, not exactly somethingbI would let my 7-year old read (if I had one) but DEFINETLY one for the teens.

    Terriffic

    This book is great. The first 40 or so pages are just some things the author wanted to put in. If you just skip to chapter1 and ignore those, it'll be fine. The only grammar mistake was it was missing an apostrophe. And it only happens once. Great book. Reccomend it to all!

    Bookworm

    Love this book! Own all four volumes. Read it sometime, it's really good. Oh, and don't mind if it's political. It mentions a lot of political stuff because Jonathan Swift (the author) was very political himself. He, in fact, wrote this story for political reasons. Just letting you know that. Oh! And Lilliput isn't as nice as they put it in the movies. The giants from Brobdingnag are better and also the Houyhynhyms from volume four.

    Well, enjoy this book!

    I liked this book

    Hey if your in to a good adventure story this is the book to read. Youstart off in a easy to grasp startingjourney and then the story continues to get further out their but you see a side of the characters as we act in humanity. This is a good story full of great adventures. All i can say is poor gulliver or is he really in need of pity?
