Julian Patrick Õ 501 Great Writers A Comprehensive Guide to the Giants of Literature book

G asides This book covers a broad range of literary artists who have shaped the course of fiction poetry drama and philosophical thought across a span of than 2500 years Both a handy uick reference source and an inspiration for readers to delve into the world of the literary arts 501 Great Writers is certain to be opened and referred to time and time again Filled with photos and illustrations An interesting but not spectacular browse book I love the big pictures of all the authors in uestion and any list of great writers like this starts me jotting down new entries in the to read journal However the book seems to fail as it gets closer to the modern era including too many folks for what seems like diversity issues or for being controversial rather than being writers who will truly hold up over time
