Great Accomplishments in English

Few people doubt that William Shakespeare is by far the best writer in English literary history—and that’s no mean feat, given the centuries of English history have been adorned with writers who, even if Shakespeare had never existed, would have placed the UK as the top literary country in the world (yes, the UK is considered a country).

Here are some of the best English writers who would have ensured England’s place at the top of the literature league, even without including the Bard of Avon.

Jane Austen (1775 – 1817)

On the Jane Austen Centre’s website, it says: ‘Jane Austen is perhaps the best known and best loved of Bath’s many famous residents and visitors.’ 

What restraint! –considering that Jane Austen is indisputably one of the greatest English writers ever–some say the greatest after Shakespeare–and certainly the greatest English novelist and one of the most famous English women who ever lived.

William Blake (1757-1827)

William Black was not highly regarded either as a painter or poet by his contemporaries. The reason he was actually disregarded because he was very much ahead of his time in his views and his poetic style, and also because he was regarded as being somewhat mad, due to behavior that would be thought of as only slightly eccentric today– for example his naturist habit of walking around his garden naked and sunbathing there.

Geoffrey Chaucer (1343-1400)

Geoffrey Chaucer stands as a great giant of English poetry; his verse is still read and enjoyed today and often adapted for theatre performances; it is full of characters, still recognizable as types we encounter in daily life in spite of having been inspired by people Chaucer observed more than seven hundred years ago.

Charles Dickens (1812-1870)

Charles Dickens was an extraordinary guy; he is best known as a novelist, but he was very much more than that. Dickens was as prominent in his other pursuits, but they were not areas of life where we can still see him today. He is the author of works like Oliver Twist, David Copperfield, Great Expectations, A Tale of Two Cities, Bleak House and many others (all of them classics).

John Donne (1572-1631)

John Donne must be one of the most interesting writers who ever lived, both as a poet and a man: his life was a colorful adventure, his poems are significant feats of language. Donne was Jacobean writer, more or less a contemporary of Shakespeare, Fletcher and Webster, but very distant from those theatre writers, both regarding his social class and his literary work.

George Eliot (1819-1880)

George Eliot was a woman! “George Eliot” was just a pen name for Mary Ann Evans, a novelist who produced some of the major classic novels of the Victorian era: The Mill on the Floss, Adam Bede, Silas Marner, Romola, Felix Holt, Daniel Deronda and her masterpiece, Middlemarch.

It is impossible to overestimate the significance of Eliot’s novels in the English culture: they went right to the heart of the small-town politics that made up the fabric of English society during that time. Her novels were actually quite political, though its not obvious at first glance.

John Milton (1608-1674)

English is often referred to as ‘the language of Shakespeare and Milton’. This is due to the fact that Milton’s poetry is considered the most perfect poetic expression in the English language for four centuries.

Milton’s most famous poem, the epic Paradise Lost is a high point of English epic poetry. Its story has entered into English and European culture to such a great extent.

George Orwell (1903-1950)

George Orwell was the pen name of Eric Blair, a twentieth century writer who also worked within journalism; wrote essays and novels; and enjoyed taking part in literary criticism and social commentary.

He was actually famous in all those areas, but is particularly remembered for two of his novels, Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty Four—both among the most significant works of literature of the twentieth century (and two of the most influential!).

Harold Pinter (1930-2008)

Harold Pinter won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2005, three years before his death. He enjoyed a career of more than half a century as a playwright, director, actor and writer of screenplays for television and film. He was—without doubt—the most influential English playwright of the twentieth century.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834)

Samuel Taylor Coleridge was an English poet. He was best known as a literary critic and philosopher during his lifetime.

Coleridge was immensely influential in English literature. He was one of the founders of the English Romantic Movement. When people talk about ‘the Romantic poets,’ Coleridge’s name should springs to mind.

There are other great English language writers closely associated with the English writing scene. Many could naturally have been included in this list (had they been born in England!).
