They are icons of the literary world whose soaring works have been discussed and analyzed in countless classrooms, homes, and pubs. Yet for most listeners, the living, breathing human beings behind the classics have remained unknown - until now. In this utterly captivating audiobook, Dr. Elliot Engel, a leading authority on the lives of great authors, illuminates the fascinating and flawed members of literature's elite. In lieu of stuffy biographical sketches, Engel provides fascinating anecdotes.
You'll never look at these literary giants the same way again.

"Great introduction to some of the best."
I am in love with Wilde,
heavily pity Poe,
and frankly, couldn't really care for frost.
If you've always wondered why those three names are familiar, this is a great book to become a little more acquainted with these three gentlemen .
