Africa | Britain | Canada | China | France | Germany | Greece | Ireland | Japan | Latin America | Norden | Russia | South Asia | United States
Recently we began the long process of adapting and expanding our extensive research for The Greatest Literature of All Time to select the most acclaimed works from specific nations and areas.
In addition to re-using our hundreds of sources that helped create the Greatest Literature list, we have sought additional sources—popular, critical and scholarly—focusing on local literature. Our goal, in the case of each country or region, is to come up with the most compehensive listing of interest to both local readers and an open-minded global readership.
So far, fourteen such lists have been launched:
Including the authors and publications from Algeria, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Libya, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa, Zimbabwe and other countries of Africa.
Covering authors and publications from the United States.
Including the authors and publications of England, Scotland and Wales.
Comprising authors and publications from Canada.
