Author Daniel S. Burt has compiled a compelling assessment of the 100 most influential novelists, playwrights and poets of all times and cultures. From Shakespeare and Dante to Zeami Motokiyo and Oscar Wilde, the entries provide a fascinating, accessible introduction to major writers of world literature. All of the writers chosen have helped to redefine literature, establishing a standard with which succeeding generations of writers and readers have had to contend. The ranking attempts to discern, from the broadest possible perspective, what makes a literary artist great and how that greatness can be measured and compared. Each profile distills the essence of the writer’s career and character to help prompt consideration of literary merit and relationships by the reader.
