No. 3 on The Guardian's 100 Best Novels, Gulliver's Travels is a treasured literary classic.
A savage and hilarious satire, Gulliver's Travels shows Lemuel Gulliver shipwrecked and adrift, subject to bizarre and unsettling encounters with quarrelling Lilliputians, philosophizing horses and the brutish Yahoo tribe, giving him a new, bitter perpective on human behavior. Mankind is portrayed in a distorted hall of mirrors as a diminished, magnified and barbarous species, giving us a comical yet uncompromising reflection of ourselves.
About the cover: "The four parts of 'Gulliver's Travels' are illustrated using the objects and symbols the protagonist encounters on his travels; the four anchors representing each of his journeys. The overall visual is based on a compass, representing Gulliver’s navigation, both physically and morally, through the lands and customs he explores." - Denise Nestor
