Gulliver’s Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World is a prose satire of 1726 by the Irish writer and clergyman Jonathan Swift, satirising both human nature and the “travellers’ tales” literary subgenre. It is Swift’s best known full-length work, and a classic of English literature. Swift claimed that he wrote Gulliver’s Travels “to vex the world rather than divert it”.
The book was an immediate success. John Gay remarked “It is universally read, from the cabinet council to the nursery.”
