By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of several Ships, 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. The book became tremendously popular as soon as it was published. (John Gay said in a 1726 letter to Swift that "it is universally read, from the cabinet council to the nursery" ); since then, it has never been out of print. The book is also required reading for many high school students, including high school Literature Advanced Placement students. via;wiki I loved this book and also the cartoon. As a kid i certainly did not understand the satire yet now it seems brilliant. In the cartoon the one character that always stuck with me was "Glum". He was so funny and his negative silliness still reminds me of living characters today. He actually reminds me of a few people i know. 'Glum' Quotes; "it'll never work!, we'll never make it!, we're doomed!" etc.
