"You canker blossom!" 3 Shakespearean Insults
(1726) A satire by Jonathan Swift. Lemuel Gulliver, an Englishman, travels to exotic lands, including Lilliput (where the people are six inches tall), Brobdingnag (where the people are seventy feet tall), and the land of the Houyhnhnms (where horses are the intelligent beings, and humans, called Yahoos, are mute brutes of labor).
Note: Probably the most famous image from this book is of the tiny Lilliputians having tied down the sleeping giant, Gulliver.
