On October 28, 1726, Gulliver’s Travels is first published. It is greeted with enthusiasm by its contemporary public and has been embraced in the centuries after in the form of sequels, cartoons, movies, and tv series.

The effect of Swift’s story has even penetrated the English language. The words lilliputian (to be small and delicate) and yahoo (a rude, rough person) have been attributed to Gulliver’s Travels.
