Chapter - 1

Gulliver stays home for five months very happily. However, he then leaves his pregnant wife to set sail again, this time as the captain of a ship called the Adventure – a stout merchantman of 350 tons. He set sail on September 07, 1710. He recruits Robert Purefoy – a skilful young man into his ship. Many of his sailors die of illness, so he recruits from Barbados. His crewmembers mutiny under the influence of these new sailors and become pirates. On May 9th 1711, a person with the name James Welch came up to Gulliver to inform him that they have decided to maroon Gulliver ashore. Gulliver is left on an unknown shore, after being confined to his cabin for several days. Gulliver starts exploring the island, however, from a distance sees animals with long hair, goat like beards, and sharp claws, which they use to climb trees. Gulliver decides that these animals are extremely ugly and sets forth to find settlers, but he encounters one of the animals on his way. Gulliver takes out his sword and hits the animal with the flat side of it. The animal roars loudly and a herd of others like it attack Gulliver by attempting to defecate on him. He hides, but then he sees them hurrying away. He emerges from his hiding place to see that the beasts have been scared away by a horse. The horse observes Gulliver carefully and then it neighs in a complicated cadence. Another horse joins the first and the two seem to be involved in a discussion. Gulliver tries to leave, but one of the horses calls him back. The horses appear to be so intelligent that Gulliver concludes that they are magicians who have transformed themselves into horses. He addresses them directly and asks to be taken to a house or village. The horses use the words “Yahoo” and “Houyhnhnm,” which Gulliver tries to pronounce. Chapter – 2
