Gulliver's travels by Jonathan Swift( )

46 editions published between 1971 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shipwrecked and cast adrift, Lemuel Gulliver wakes to find himself on Lilliput, an island inhabited by little people, whose height makes their quarrels over fashion and fame seem ridiculous. His subsequent encounters - with the crude giants of Brobdingnag, the philosophical Houyhnhnms and brutish Yahoos - give Gulliver new, bitter insights into human behaviour. Swift's savage satire views mankind in a distorted hall of mirrors as a diminished, magnified and finally bestial species, presenting us with an uncompromising reflection of ourselves

Daphnis and Chloe by Longus( Book )

20 editions published between 1956 and 2005 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Longus's pastoral has attracted disapproval too - Mrs. Browning called it an 'obscene text' - it has proved an enduringly fertile source for artists from Henry Fielding to Corot and Ravel and is recognizably the masterpiece among early Greek novels. It shares with them the stock in trade of pirates, dreams and supernatural aids, but Longus's artistry adds other dimensions, transforming it into a virtuoso love story, rich in insights, humorous and ironical in its treatment of human sexual experience
