Most widely held works by Alexandre Vialatte
Les fruits du Congo by Alexandre Vialatte( Book )

40 editions published between 1951 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Par le traducteur de Kafka, un très beau roman féerique publié en 1951 et qui reconstitue avec beaucoup de poésie les aventures intérieures projetées en mythes déconcertants émanant de l'enfance en groupe. Une inoubliable silhouette en relief créée à partir d'un personnage va ainsi incarner la mauvaise chance tandis qu'une déesse issue d'un panneau publicitaire va cristalliser les rêves. Un très beau roman injustement oublié

Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka( Book )

59 editions published between 1938 and 2015 in French and German and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A novel about a man who finds himself transformed into a huge insect, and the effects of this change upon his life. This is a fantastic horror story about a hapless man who is turned into an insect. When Gregor Samsa woke up one morning from unsettling dreams, he found himself changed in his bed into a monstrous vermin. With this startling, bizarre, yet surprisingly funny first sentence, Kafka begins his masterpiece, The Metamorphosis. It is the story of a young man who, transformed overnight into a giant beetlelike insect, becomes an object of disgrace to his family, an outsider in his own home, a quintessentially alienated man. A harrowing -- though absurdly comic -- meditation on human feelings of inadequacy, guilt, and isolation, The Metamorphosis has taken its place as one of the most widely read and influential works of twentieth-century fiction

"Lorsque, à seize ans, le jeune Karl Rossmann, que ses pauvres parents envoyaient en exil parce qu'une bonne l'avait séduit et rendu père, entra dans le port de New York sur le bateau déjà plus lent, la statue de la Liberté, qu'il observait depuis longtemps lui apparut dans un sursaut de lumières. On eût dit que le bras qui brandissait l'épée s'était levé à l'instant même, et l'air libre soufflait autour de ce grand corps

In der Strafkolonie : eine Geschichte aus d. Jahre 1914 by Franz Kafka( Book )

32 editions published between 1948 and 1988 in 3 languages and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the Penal Colony" ("In der Strafkolonie") (also translated as "In the Penal Settlement") is a short story by Franz Kafka written in German in October 1914, revised in November 1918, and first published in October 1919. The story is set in an unnamed penal colony. Internal clues and the setting on an island suggest Octave Mirbeau's "The Torture Garden" as an influence. As in some of Kafka's other writings, the narrator in this story seems detached from, or perhaps numbed by, events that one would normally expect to be registered with horror. "In the Penal Colony" describes the last use of an elaborate torture and execution device that carves the sentence of the condemned prisoner on his skin before letting him die, all in the course of twelve hours. As the plot unfolds, the reader learns more and more about the machine, including its origin and original justification
