  1. The Lilliputians are 6” tall, a ratio of 1:12. So, their barrels of wine prove to be the perfect containers for Gulliver to drink.

  2. Nardac, is the highest honorary title one can earn on Lilliput. When Gulliver captures the fleet of Lilliput’s dreaded neighbors, the Blefuscudians, he earns that title.
  3. The fickle Lilliputians find disfavor with Gulliver and decide to blind him.  This would, in their minds, prevent him from finding food. Thus, he would starve to death.

  4. Though neighbors and potential allies, the Lilliputians and the Blefuscudians are deeply divided on one immutable point: to crack an egg on the small end or the large end.

  5. In Brobdingnag, the ratio is 12:1. Gulliver is found by a 72’ farmer. His care is the responsibility of the man’s daughter.  She keeps him in a traveling box, and exhibits him.

  6. While on exhibition at the seashore, Gulliver’s travel box is swooped up by an eagle.  It is eventually dropped into the sea.

  7. A man working in the fields first discovers the abandoned Gulliver.

  8. Gulliver is treated as a side-show attraction and forced to perform acts for spectators.

  9. In Brobdingnag, there is a dwarf who is only 30’ tall. He is the queen’s prime source of amusement, and Gulliver’s main antagonist.
