Gulliver's Travels


'Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World. In Four Parts'.

By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of Several Ships, better known simply as Gulliver's Travels. It is a novel by Irish writer and clergyman Jonathan Swift, that is both a satire on human nature and a parody of the "travellers' tales" literary sub-genre.

It is Swift's best known full-length work, and a classic of English literature.

In 1995, 'Gulliver's Travels' was adapted by English biographer, Humphrey Carpenter, and shown at Theatre Clwyd, in Mold, North Wales.

Ralph Steadman put his 'set designer hat on' and created a collection of drawings, from which the designers for the production could bring Carpenter's adaptation to life.
