Overview

Authors have been writing since the beginning of time, but on rare occasions, a work is created which defines the genre in which it resides; a true masterpiece of literature. Of course, the art requires an artist, one of a select few that have risen to the pinnacle of their craft; achieving the mantle of legend.

This book is about those 120 individuals who, for more than 2,000 years, have created the works that have enhanced the human existence. It provides but a brief look into the often fascinating lives of those writers, attempting to provide a slight insight into who they really were, which is more than a name on a cover.

Join us for a journey through the ages and into the pages, as we peek into the elite club of some of the most creative individuals to ever commit words to paper; The Classis Authors.
