Gulliver's travels

Gilliver was a doctor. One day he decided to sail into a ship. But there was a terrible storm; only he was alive and arrived in a land lived by man 15 centimetres tall. They built a house for his misures, tauch him their language, gave him food and drinks.

Life in Lilliput is very strange: they has some costumes (like the choose of king's official with a rope) that we don't have. After many days the king make him free, but he had to help always all lilliputians. A day some official told him of a dangerous situation for then. In fact there was a quarrel to decide how to break bailed eggs (if the largest or smaller) and now the big Endians (largest) asked help to an island hear them and now they wanted to attack Lilliput.

He had a good idea and soon he kept all enemy's ship. The king asked him to take all the ship of other country, but he refused. So the king was angry with him. He helped again Lilliputions: the Queen's rooms were burning: he made water and the building was safe. But what he did, was a crime .

Many of the King's official wanted to punish him, so they decided to lose his sight. An official that was his friend, told him all these thinks, and Gilliver decided to escape. He went to Blefuscu, and stayed there for 3 days, than he refused the promises of that King, and leave with a ship perhaps driven there by a storm. He come back to London, all people see some animals taken from that island, but then he decided to leave again.

During the voyage, they had to stop in an island because of a terrible storm. But in this island men 20 metres high lived. He was alone, because the other run away. One of these men sow him, take him in his house with his wife, and they were very kind. The name of this island was Brobdingnag.

His master with the family was very kind with him: they gave him food, a bed, and a daughter lodead after him. But one day the farmer decided to take him to the market to amuse crowds, and so earn many money. And this was so successful that he arranged to show him at the capital and in all country. But he was very tired and wanted to escape.

Queen's family was very kind: they make built a beautiful house for him and they often ate together. But dwarf, who before he came, he was smallest person in the palace, was angry with him and tried to kill him, but at the end he was sent away. Then he described this island as exactly as possible, because travellers are often accused of not telling the truth.

Because of he was so small, he had many difficult and often he was afraid to die. Then he had many discussion with King: he spoke him about England (history, costumes, lows). But King said that it wasn't a good country. They always ht, there was violence, anegual decision, and he thought his country was best, and perhaps it is true; he refused to learn how to make gunpowder.

A day, he was in the beach, and perhaps a bird took him, inside his traveller house. They flew, but then the bird lot him fall into the sea. Fortunatly, an English ship could save him and so he could come back with his family. He told to the captain of the ship his story, but he couldn't believe.

After ten years he leave again from his country. But in this case his ship was taken by pirates. He could reach in an island, and there he so another island flying upon him. It was Laputa. They were interested only in mathematics and music, and they had a strange system of teaching (eat a paper with another's questions and their solutions): but they seem unhappy, pear, hungry and miserable.

He decided to go in another island, Glubbdubdrid, were every man is a magician. There he, thanks to the King, could to speak with the ghost of important man of history, like Alexander the Great or Jiulius Caesar and Brutus. Then he went to Luggnagg, where some man (Struldbrugs) could live for ever. But after eighty years, they will became poor, ill, miserable, and they couldn't remember their life. Then, their life will be without friends. Then he went to Japan and there he could sail a ship to return into England.

Sometimes then, he decided to sail again, and this time he was captain. But during the voyage his sailors became pirates, and take him in an island, Houyhnhnms. Here the more intelligent and sensible being were horse, and some creatures like him were servant. There are never lied, and in their country there wasn't disease, crime wars. He was happy there, he started to think and walk like them. But he had to go away, and he was very unhappy, because he didn't went to came back between human beings: they lie, steal, ht, always did so, and always will do so.
