Correct response: What is Gulliver’s Travels?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
Gulliver’s Travels is a well-known 1726 novel by Jonathan Swift, though it was originally published anonymously. It was as much a “traveler’s tale” as it was a satire, as it lampooned many English customs and politics of the day. In terms of the book itself, the shipwreck causes Gulliver to reach Liliput, a sea storm causes him to reach Brobdingnag, the pirates setting him adrift in order to reach Laputa, and the mutiny causes him to visit a land populated by Houyhnhnms and Yahoos.
