In his travels, Gulliver visits four extraordinary places. In the first, Lilliput, people are five or six inches tall, in the second, Brobdingnag, they are sixty or seventy feet. The third, encompassing Laputa, Balnibarbi, Luggnagg, Glubbdubrib, and Japan, is a kind of satellite inhabited by absurdly impractical scientists, and the fourth, the Country of the Houyhnhnms, is governed by horses who treat humans as filthy animals. Gullivers' fantastic adventures were read at different levels, as a travel book and also as a powerful satire on human nature.
