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.

Entertaining but not all the facts are straight
Any additional comments?
It was fun to learn about these authors, but I noticed that some of the facts regarding Poe's life were wrong. Otherwise a great listen.

A stimulating presentation of curious info about authors I love. I learned a lot of interesting stuff that I had not heard before, even though I am an English teacher with 30 years experience. Engel talks quickly but clearly and with enthusiasm and love for his topics. I have heard him in person five times, and this audio presentation equals his live performances.

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 .
