DANIEL S. BURT is a writer and has been a college literature professor at New York University and Wesleyan University for more than 20 years.From School Library Journal:
In this revision of the 2001 edition, veteran professor Burt (The Drama 100) has expanded the list of the top 100 literary figures to incorporate an additional 25, including Robert Frost, Toni Morrison, George Orwell, Sappho, and Arthur Miller. The entire ranking system has been reconsidered, and Burt acknowledges the subjectivity of this process and inevitable dissent in his preface. With definitive worth applied to Eastern and Western literary icons, the ranking equals a debate-spurring thesis, while engaging profiles are an essential literary primer.
