LibriVoxJonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels, a three century old account of a series of fantastic voyages, is the subject of an upcoming SFFaudio Readalong!

In preparation for the occasion I’ve scoured my shelves for all their Gulliverian content. There, amongst other things, I found an elderly, but undated, ex-elementary school library book that my grandmother had culled from her old school in North Vancouver, British Columbia. Sadly, a short caveat in it declares:

“This text is complete except for the omission of one or two unsuitable passages.”

So, with that, I won’t use it as my primary textual reference with an audiobook edition. The good news is that despite it’s omissions it contains more than a dozen striking illustrations by George Morrow. I have scanned them all and added them to this post (below).

For those who’d like to follow along with our readalong, check out either the recently posted Audible.com edition (as read by David Hyde Pierce) or use this handy FREE edition from LibriVox!

Gulliver’s Travels (1726, amended 1735), officially “Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World”, is a novel by Jonathan Swift that is both a satire on human nature and a parody of the “travellers’ tales” literary sub-genre. It is widely considered Swift’s magnum opus and is his most celebrated work, as well as one of the indisputable classics of English literature.
