Details

Going on the minor mention of this novel near the beginning of Demons, folks - that's just how I roll :) - gotta love those random connections.... But seriously, one thing I'm interested in is the difference/distance between various watered down versions of this story (say, for children) and the original novel, which is considerably darker and more interesting. Enjoy! (I'll be using the Penguin edition, but not too fussy - whatever you can find is fine.)

This will be the first of two sessions on Gulliver's Travels. For this meeting, we will discuss Part I ("A Voyage to Lilliput") and Part II ("A Voyage to Brobdingnag").
