Brilliant satire, on so many things: religion, politics, history, even Man himself. So much of this still holds up today. And for the time, some of the passages are a bit explicit - the Lilliputians being impressed by his "package," urinating on the palace, the Brobdingnagian nipples, et cetera. I don't think we ever really covered this in school, but now I'm glad that we didn't, as it gave me a chance to better appreciate it on its own merits.
