    #1, you can say it grew in importance, but you can not say that is "grew in lost" That is an oxymoron.

    2. is fine.

    3. Use active voice instead of passive.

    4. Do not use "has got"

    After pirates set Gulliver adrift in a small boat, he is shipwrecked on the shore of Lilliput where he is nearly trampled to death.
