The analysis of Gulliver’s Travels is the examination of exploration of voyages by Lemuel Gulliver who was English surgeon in a ship. Lemuel Gulliver was enrooted to specific destinations but lpst the sea route ending up in unknown islands where he explored rare kind of populations with unknown animals with different behaviors and character. The surgeon is able to establish a route back to England and after a short while he sets out on a new exploration mission.
Lemuel Gulliver ends up in a land that was occupied by a Houyhnhnms population served by horses and ruled by Yahoos. Gulliver takes time to learn the native language narrating his voyages and interpreting the England constitution. Lemuel Gulliver is mandated to leave the Houyhnhnms due to a complication of his complexity that cannot allow him to stay in the land. As he sails out of the land, he is salvaged by the Portuguese and concludes the narrations on his voyages by claiming England as the rightful owner of the lands visited (Swift, Pg 211).
Giovanni da verrazzano was a Florentine navigator who existed in the 14th century in the city of Florence.

The two crossed the Caribbean coast where Verrazzano was assassinated. Verrazzano’s life is marked with a series of attempt on the Transatlantic voyages which were he commanded a ship worth 100 tones.
