Discussion questions – Gulliver’s Travels Book I: “A Voyage to Lilliput”: what does Gulliver hide from the Lilliputians

  • After the above inventory is taken and Gulliver needs to give up all his possessions, how might the Lilliputians see or  regard Gulliver (see page 37 specifically)?  Also: what does Gulliver hide from the Lilliputians?
  • Why do the Lilliputians go to great pains/lengths to maintain Gulliver?  How could they possibly benefit by keeping him? Why do some of the Lilliputians feel it is necessary to kill Gulliver? What means do they suggest? What final consideration saves his life?
