A masterpiece of English literature, The novel has never gone out of print since its publication in 1726. Its universality is truly commendable as it can be read as a children's story as well as a work of satire on English politics and society. The story follows the adventures of Lemuel Gulliver as he travels to four distinct lands-lilliput, Brobdingnag, the kingdom of Laputa and surrounding territories, and the land of the Houyhnhnms where he meets curious creatures and witnesses worldviews starkly opposed to that of the English society he is so familiar with. An Evergreen tale, Gulliver's travels has been adapted to music, film, television and radio several times over the years.".
