Julie; ou, La nouvelle Heĺois̈e ; Lettres de deux amants habitants d'une petite ville au pied des Alpes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau( Book )

90 editions published between 1806 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 967 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Si "La Nouvelle Héloïse" a su toucher les lecteurs, ce n'est pas seulement grâce à la prose de Rousseau ou à son art de mettre en circulation de manière originale des propositions philosophiques inédites. Cela a tenu aussi à une conception nouvelle du livre, qui a vu les "Lettres" de deux amants paraître escortées d'une préface dite dialoguée et surtout d'un recueil de planches réalisées d'après les sujets fournis par Rousseau et élaborées par Gravelot, un des maîtres d'illustration rococo. Aux yeux de Rousseau, ces planches étaient indispensables pour susciter des effets de lecture soigneusement concertés. L'édition classique de René Pomeau, la seule à fournir au lecteur d'aujourd'hui l'ensemble des éléments du dossier imaginé par Rousseau, est donc aussi la seule à lui permettre de saisir les intentions du romancier. Elle est ici accompagnée d'une bibliographie renouvelée de Jacques Berchtold et Yannick Séité."--P. [4] of cover

Candide; ou, L'optimisme by Voltaire( Book )

44 editions published between 1958 and 1989 in 3 languages and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the surface a witty, bantering tale of advneture (or misadventure), Candide is actually a savage, satiric thrust at the philosophical optimism which proclaims that nation-wide disasters and individual suffering are both just part of a cosmic plan which is essentially good. Voltaire was not prepared to excuse the world's evil quite so easily, now would he encourage man to accept evil as fate without trying to prevent it or fight it. Candide is the story of a man who, though pummeled and slapped in every direction by fate, tries desperately to cling to his optimism
