The golden ass by Apuleius( Book )

18 editions published between 1932 and 1974 in English and held by 747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With accuracy, wit, and intelligence, this remarkable new translation of The Golden Ass breathes new life into Apuleius's classic work. Sarah Ruden, a lyric poet as well as a highly respected translator, skillfully duplicates the verbal high jinks of Apuleius's ever-popular novel. It tells the story of Lucius, a curious and silly young man, who is turned into a donkey when he meddles with witchcraft. Doomed to wander from region to region and mistreated by a series of deporable owners, Lucius at last is restored to human form with the help of the goddess Isis. In a translation that is the most faithful and the most entertaining to date, Ruden reveals to modern readers the vivid, farcical ingenuity of Apuleius's style."--Inside jacket flap

John Bunyan, maker of myths by Jack Lindsay( Book )

21 editions published between 1937 and 1993 in English and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a biography of Bunyan. But there would be no excuse for re-telling the story of Bunyan's life unless one were considering it from a new angle, with a new focus. The new focus is here provided by the attempt to relate Bunyan's work in particular, and the protestant movement in general, to the social forces from which they sprang. At the same time I have tried to analyze the myth-making faculty in Bunyan and to show how his allegories take their place in the world of symbolism and myth. - Foreword

As can be expected, mayhem, and hilarity, ensues
