The novel "Gulliver's Travels" was written at the beginning of the 18th century, but despite its numerous editions since then, it has not stopped surprising us with the discoveries, socio-political insights and social prophecies that the author has woven into the plot, images and situations. The idea of ​​writing a book to ridicule the excessive scientism of modern times was born in 1713, when one evening Swift and his friends Alexander Pope and John Arbuthnot argued about the great and the insignificant, the gigantic and the small. The 46-year-old already established publicist makes the argument to his comrades that nothing in the world is big or small if it is not compared to something else. This is how the idea for "Gulliver's Travels" matures - Swift's first real novel, his first deep "dive" into the world of fiction. The book is divided into four parts, the first two of which literary critics frivolously label "children's literature". For the third and fourth, things are different: there no one dares to deny or downplay the power and scale of the satirical image. Even most of its mastitis modern interpreters with awe get away with the already banal phrase that "Gulliver" is perhaps the most underrated classic work in English literature.
