Description
From William Shakespeare to Marcel Proust, and from Jane Austen to Anton Chekhov, this survey of the greatest writers of all time has enough tried-and-true classics to please any traditionalist. Seeking to encompass a greater cross section of world literature, however, Daniel Burt has expanded his overview to include more non-Western authors (Rabindranath Tagore, Li Bo, Junichiro Tanazaki) ancient writers (Sappho, Euripedes, Aristophanes) and literary mavericks (Charles Baudelaire, Gertrude Stein, Robert Musil). Each author and his or her works are discussed in a 34 page essay, along with a portrait. And because it's so hard to pick just 100 authors, Burt generously adds another 25 to his list.
