Book Description

GEOFFREY CHAUCER WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE JANE AUSTEN ROBERT BROWNING & ELIZABETH BARRETT BROWNING EDGAR ALLAN POE CHARLES DICKENS CHARLOTTE & EMILY BRONTE EMILY DICKINSON MARK TWAIN GEORGE ELIOT THOMAS HARDY OSCAR WILDE SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE D. H. LAWRENCE F. SCOTT FITZGERALD ERNEST HEMINGWAY ROBERT FROST They are icons of the literary world whose soaring works have been discussed and analyzed in countless classrooms, homes, and pubs. Yet for most readers, the living, breathing human beings behind the classics have remained unknown...until now! In this utterly captivating book, Dr. Elliot Engel, a foremost authority on the lives of great authors, illuminates the fascinating and flawed men and women of literature's elite. In lieu of stuffy biographical sketches "A Dab of Dickens & A Touch of Twain" reveals dozens of fascinating anecdotes: Why Sir Arthur Conan Doyle blamed his wife's death on Sherlock Holmes How Charles Dickens' pet launched Edgar Allan Poe on his way to literary immortality The strange connection between Jane Austen and Ernest Hemingway How Louisa May Alcott's attempt to get Mark Twain's "Huckleberry Finn" banned backfired...and more! You'll never look at these literary giants the same way again."
