Welcome to Classic Authors!

Classic Authors are classic not because they conform to certain structural rules or fit certain definitions. They are classic because of a certain eternal and irrepressible freshness.

One of the true elements of a Classic is that "they can be read again and again with ever deepening pleasure."

This profile celebrates the life and works of the Classic Authors and acts as a hub for our Classic Author profiles which you can see in our reading lists. We have also followed them so you can find them more easily.
