Illustrated Gulliver’s Travels, whose full title is Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World. The main character, Lemuel Gulliver, first a Surgeon, and then a Captain of Several Ships. (original book published 1726 and amended 1735), is a prose satire by Irish writer and clergyman Jonathan Swift, that is both a satire on human nature and the “travellers’ tales” literary subgenre. It is Swift’s best known full-length work, and a classic of English literature. He himself claimed that he wrote Gulliver’s Travels “to vex the world rather than divert it”. The book became popular as soon as it was published. John Gay wrote in a 1726 letter to Swift that “It is universally read, from the cabinet council to the nursery.”
