List of Authors 1008-2001

Making the attempt to create a database of authors became quite the challenge. What authors are listed I tried to associate with prose, what poets there are I included for their influence. I didn’t include Ancient Greek writers, saved for a different list, contemporary authors will have to be for a list to be constructed a hundred years from now. This list tends to contrast with a list of books, where often an author is listed more than once, but if you’re so inclined, I recommend this website which is superb for drooling over great literature:

The Greatest Books

Data for this list includes next to name:

Years Lived / Age When Passed / Age at Publication / Title / Publication Date

Did I miss your favorite prose author?

Please feel free to add to the list in the comments if you’d like–I know that at Greatest Books, the list runs well over 2,000 strong.
