Gulliver''s Travels:Part 2..A Voyage to Brobdingnag

Book Review   by:AllanChristopherPuri     Original Author: Jonathan Swift
ª
 
When the sea vessel Adventure is steered off course by storms and forced to go in to land for want of freshwater, Gulliver is abandoned by his companions and found by a farmer who is 80 feet (24 meters) tall (the scale of Lilliput is approximately 1:12; of Brobdingnag 12:1). He brings Gulliver home and his daughter cares for Gulliver. The farmer treats him as a curiosity and exhibits him for money. He is then bought by the Queen of Brobdingnag and kept as a favourite at court. In between small adventures such as fighting giant wasps and being carried to the roof by a monkey, he discusses the state of Europe with the King, who is not impressed. On a trip to the seaside, his "travelling box" is seized by a giant eagle who dropped Gulliver and his box right into the sea where he is picked up by some sailors, who return him to England.
