Excerpt from Gulliver's Travels: Into Some Remote Countries
Nearly two hundred years have passed since the work commonly known as Gulliver's Travels was first given to the public by its author, Jonathan Swift. It was very popular from the beginning, and is now generally regarded as one of the great books of the world. Although it was not written for children, its accounts of adventures among tiny dwarfs and mon strous giants have always had a fascination for young readers. In its original form, however, there are many passages of no interest to boys and girls; the style is tedious, and numerous passages are better skipped than read. For these reasons I have rewritten and sim plified the first two parts of the work, I have short ened the narratives by more than half, and in other ways I have tried to make the story suitable, in every respect, for young people.
