1) What political system did the country belong to? (reading for specific information)
I (Gulliver) sent many petitions for my liberty. At last His Majesty (Его Величество) mentioned the matter first in the cabinet, and then in a full council.
The emperor signed the articles upon which I recovered (возвратил себе) my liberty. Because the reader may perhaps be curious (любопытный) to have some idea of the style and manner of expression peculiar (свойственный) to that people I have made a translation of the whole document, word for word, as near as I was able. Here I offer the document to the public.
GOLBASTO MOMAREN EVLAME GURDILO SHEFIN MULLY ULLY GUE, most mighty Emperor (император) of Lilliput, delight (восторг) and terror (ужас) of the universe (вселенная), whose dominions are so large that no one can see their boundaries (границы); monarch of all monarchs, taller than the sons of men; whose feet press down to the centre, and whose head strikes against the sun; at whose nod (кивок) the princes of the earth shake their knees; pleasant as the spring, comfortable as the summer, fruitful as the autumn, dreadful as the winter. His Majesty proposes to the Man-Mountain (or Gulliver), who arrived at our celestial (великолепный) dominions, the following articles, which by a solemn (торжественный) oath (клятва) he shall perform.
First, The Man-Mountain shall not leave our dominions, without our permission under our great seal (печать).
Secondly, He shall not come into our metropolis (столица), without our order; the inhabitants shall have two hours warning (предупреждение), to keep within their doors.
Thirdly, The said Man-Mountain shall walk only across our principal high roads; and not walk or lie down in a meadow (луг), or field of corn.
Fourthly, As he walks the said roads, he shall take the utmost (предельный) care not to trample upon (наступить) the bodies of any of our loving subjects (подданные), their horses, or carriages; nor take any of our said subjects into his hands, without their own consent (согласие).
Fifthly, If we want to send an extraordinary dispatch (донесение), the Han-Mountain Shall carry in his pocket the messenger (курьер) and horse, and return the said messenger back safe to His Majesty.
Sixthly, He shall be our ally (союзник) against our enemies (враги) in the island of Blefuscu, and do his utmost (сделать всё возможное) to destroy their fleet (флот), which is now preparing to fight us.
Seventhly, That the said Man-Mountain shall at his times of leisure, be helping our workmen in raising great stones for the wall of the principal park and other our royal buidings.
Fighthly, That the said Man-Mountain shall in two moons time, deliver in an exact survey (отчет) of the size of our dominions, by counting his own paces (шаги) round the coast.
Lastly, If he observes all these articles, the said Man-Mountain shall have his daily meat and drink, sufficient for 1728 subjects of our state, he shall be able to come to His Majesty freely and have other marks of our favour.
Given at our Palace at Belfaborac the twelfth day of the ninety-frirst moon of our reign.
I swore (клясться) to observe all these articles with great cheerfulness, although some of them were not so honourable as I could have wished.
2) Do these rules correspond to the articles Gulliver was to observe? (reading for detail)
• Gulliver shall carry the royal mail.
• The Man-Mountain shall help the workmen in building.
• The said Man-Mountain shall have enough meat and drink whenever he needs.
• Gulliver shall walk anywhere he wants.
• Gulliver shall leave the country any time he wants.
• While walking the Man-Mountain shall be very careful.
• Gulliver shall make a report on the size of the country.
• The Man-Mountain shall warn the Emperor’s subjects before leaving home.
• Gulliver shall be neutral in the battles with the enemies of Lilliput.
3) Did Gulliver agree on the rules? What makes you think so?
4) Why does the code of behaviour sound like fun? What is the funniest rule in your opinion?
5) What other rules would you add to the code of behaviour?
