Description

In Brobdingnag, the kingdom of giants described in Jonathan Swifts Gullivers Travels, Gulliver is cared for by a farm girl whom he calls his Glumdalclitch little nurse in Brobdingnagian. GLUMDALCLITCH is the story of that girls adventurous progress to strong and fulfilling womanhood. Her name is Wendeling. After Gullivers apparent death (here this story begins), Wendeling becomes the ward and favorite of the queen. She is schooled in all knowledge by the old savant Hassflig. Her beauty, grace and daring set herapart. She marries her love, Harlbruug, and by diligent effort becomes themost influential woman in a male-dominated society, espousing equal rights for women. Through it all she cherishes memories of the tiny Englishman, and she and Harlbruug create a Gulliver museum. In the climactic event, Wendelings baby is dramatically saved from the clutches of the villainous Skraagnok by the crew of English sailors who have retraced Gullivers long-ago voyage to Brobdingnag. After the rescue their ship is trundled back to seaon a wagon and they sail for home as the giant Brobdingnagians wave farewell from shore.
