Gulliver's Travels

Gulliver's Travels

by Jonathan Swift

Luggnagg

Character Analysis

Luggnagg is basically a stop on Gulliver's way home to England via Japan. It doesn't get much love from Gulliver. He says it's a nice place and people are polite to strangers, but the main ornament of this satire is the tale Gulliver hears of the struldbrugs, about which, see below.
