Gulliver's Travels Setting

Where It All Goes Down

Lilliput, Brobdingnag, Laputa, Glubbdubdrib, Luggnagg, Japan, and Houyhnhnm Land

We're in kind of bind trying to describe the setting of Gulliver's Travels, because the setting itself is part of the satire, which we've already discussed in the "Characters" section, dealing with the people from all of these different islands. So, we hope you'll excuse us if we send you back to "Characters" for more information on which of Gulliver's islands are small, large, floating, or haunted!
