4). T S Eliot,
5). J R R Tolkien
6). C S Lewis
7). R F Capone

These are clearly 9 very fantastic authors. I agree these are a very select group of authors.
Ones that I also believe everyone should read.
This author’s explanations for why they should be read are very thorough and extremely intense.
I had to sit with a dictionary at the ready. His descriptions, while very thorough were also, way above my pay grade 😯😯
There were MANY words I Had to look up, just to make sure I was on the same page as him literally!
So for me, loved the content
I didn’t like the delivery
The book still had great content and was just fantastically written, There are 100’s of other authors that I would include in this list of people you just NEED to read, however the limits of this book were 9 writers
