Happy Birthday, Jonathan Swift!


The Guest of Honor, born November 30, 1667

Welcome to the birthday party!

Perhaps Jonathan Swift’s best known tale is that of Gulliver’s Travels (1726). The name of the eponymous character hints of Swift’s upbringing in Ireland, because of its resemblance to the Gaeilge word ghallaibh (foreigners), reflecting the character’s adventures in some very strange lands.

Indie authors who write in this genre would do well to study Gulliver’s Travels and consider what has made it a hit for nearly 300 years.

There’s much more to the story than the part on which the adaptation shown below is loosely based, but it is one of the most beautifully drawn animated feature films of its era, and certainly surpasses most modern cartoons of the last generation.

Enjoy Jon’s birthday today!
