Classics Book Club: Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift

Date: 
Thursday, March 22, 2018 - 10:30am

Shipwrecked and cast adrift, Lemuel Gulliver wakes to find himself on Lilliput, an island inhabited by little people, whose height makes their quarrels over fashion and fame seem ridiculous. His subsequent encounters - with the crude giants of Brobdingnag, the philosophical Houyhnhnms and the brutish Yahoos - give Gulliver new, bitter insights into human behavior. Swift's savage satire view of mankind in a distorted hall of mirrors as a diminished, magnified and finally bestial species, presenting us with an uncompromising reflection of ourselves.  Copies available at the check-out desk.  Refreshments served.  In the second floor reading area.
