Gulliver, an adventurous traveler, sails through the unknown waters of seas and oceans. A storm ruptures his ship and the sailor ends up unconscious on the shore of a mysterious country. Having woken up, the sailor finds himself surrounded by tiny men, who are trying to tie him and chain him to the ground. He easily gets rid of the restraints, only to find himself dragged into the epicenter of the civil war that began because of a mere trifle. Jonathan Swift's satiric-fantasy novel ‘Gulliver's Travels’ cleverly mocks human and social flaws. Illustrated by Vladislav Kolomoets.

Gulliver's Travels (Original title - Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World. In Four Parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of Several Ships), a misanthropic satire of humanity, was written in 1726 by Jonathan Swift. Like many other authors, Swift uses the journey as the backdrop for his satire. He invents a second author, Captain Lemuel Gulliver, who because of a series of mishaps en route to recognized ports, ends up, instead, on several unknown islands living with people and animals of unusual sizes, behaviors, and philosophies, but who, after each adventure, is somehow able to return to his home in England where he recovers from these unusual experiences and then sets out again on a new voyage. Jonathan Swift (1667 – 1745) was an Anglo-Irish poet, writer and cleric who gained reputation as a great political writer and an essayist. Jonathan, who became Dean of St. Patrick's in Dublin, is also known for his excellence in satire. His most remembered works include Gulliver's Travels, A modest Proposal, An Argument against Abolishing Christianity and A Tale of a Tub.
