The Life and Adventures of Peter Wilkins, Volume 2 
Robert Paltock 


The imaginary voyage, from which a hero returns made wise through 
extraordinary experience, is at least as old as Odysseus. But the major 
inspiration for this 1750 iteration is Gulliver’s Travels (1726), with which 
it shares elements of early sci-fi. Wilkins’ new friends are a lens through 
which to contemplate the customs of his old English ones, as the 
Lilliputians and Brobdingnagians were for Lemuel Gulliver. (The Public
