  About Jonathan Swift. Jonathan Swift was an Anglo-Irish satirist, essayist, political pamphleteer (first for Whigs then for Tories), and poet, famous for works like Gulliver's Travels, A Modest Proposal, A Journal to Stella, The Drapier's Letters, The Battle of the Books, and A Tale of a is probably the foremost prose satirist in the English language, and is less well known for his 4/5. Gulliver’s Travels has been written by Jonathan Swift, and it is the story of the various adventures of Lemuel Gulliver, who is basically the narrator and protagonist in the book. Gulliver, a married surgeon from Nottinghamshire, England, is someone who loves traveling.

Gulliver's Travels was the work of a writer who had been using satire as his medium for over a quarter of a century. His life was one of continual disappointment, and satire was his complaint and his defense — against his enemies and against humankind. Gulliver begins to walk inland and runs into “ugly” “animals” with thick hair on their heads, breasts, anuses, and genitals, but bare skin elsewhere. They have no tails, can walk upright, and climb trees. One approaches Gulliver and raises its “fore-paw.” When Gulliver bats it away with his sword, a whole “herd” of the animals comes running, but, afraid of Gulliver’s sword.

Designed for younger readers of the classics, "Gulliver's Stories" is based on Jonathan Swift's "Gulliver's Travels", the hilarious and incredible adventures of a man who finds himself first as a feared giant in the world of tiny people of Lilliput, and then as a man of minuscule proportions in a country full of giants.   1. Not really a children’s book. Most readers will fondly remember Gulliver as a children’s book, but the unexpurgated version is full of brutality. The ruthlessly logical Houyhnhnms.
