Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift: | ecencirhori.ml: Books
Laputa is the home of the king of Balnibarbri, the continent below it. Gulliver is permitted to leave the island and visit Lagado, the capital city of Balnibarbri. He finds the farm fields in ruin and the people living in apparent squalor. Later Gulliver visits Glubbdubdrib, the island of sorcerers, and there he speaks with great men of the past and learns from them the lies of history.
In the kingdom of Luggnagg he meets the struldbrugs , who are immortal but age as though they were mortal and are thus miserable.
From Luggnagg he is able to sail to Japan and thence back to England. In the extremely bitter fourth part, Gulliver visits the land of the Houyhnhnms , a race of intelligent horses who are cleaner and more rational, communal, and benevolent they have, most tellingly, no words for deception or evil than the brutish, filthy, greedy, and degenerate humanoid race called Yahoos, some of whom they have tamed—an ironic twist on the human-beast relationship.
The Houyhnhnms are very curious about Gulliver, who seems to be both a Yahoo and civilized, but, after Gulliver describes his country and its history to the master Houyhnhnm , the Houyhnhnm concludes that the people of England are not more reasonable than the Yahoos. At last it is decided that Gulliver must leave the Houyhnhnms. Gulliver then returns to England, so disgusted with humanity that he avoids his family and buys horses and converses with them instead.
A new edition was released in that included allegory not found in the versions; this edition is generally, though not universally, regarded as the more authentic version. Film adaptations have tended to focus on the first two stories and include an animated film produced by the Fleischer brothers , a partially animated musical version starring Richard Harris as Gulliver, and a two-part television movie starring Ted Danson.
