Derby #142: Classic Literature Mashup

Hey, this Derby's over. When you're finished reliving past glories, check out what's going on in the Derby right now. It's probably even cooler. Or at least newer.

Sophocles. Thoreau. Verne. In honor of National Library Week, we're calling for scenes, themes, and characters from classical (and public domain) literature to get all cozy. Mash up your favorite works and show us what it'd be like if Sherlock Holmes was captured by Polyphemus. Hopefully you've got something better than that. If you're not sure what constitutes public domain (and is therefore something we can print), start your research here. Obviously the usual no copyrighted material rules apply, but also bear in mind the following helpful tips:

We need to know what you're mashing up. Title your work as "ClassicWork/ClassicWork." If you've got a title too long to fit, post the works immediately in the thread so we have some reference and can verify.

No video games. Maybe in 70 years the Halo novellas will be classics, but right now they're not.

No Star Wars.

No bunnies.

Incidental Text only.
A street sign welcoming us to Brobdingnag is okay. Dialogue or titles are not.
