The Greatest Literature by Country or Region
Britain | Canada | France | Germany | Ireland | Latin America | 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, nine such lists have been launched:
The Greatest American LiteratureCovering authors and publications from the United States.
The Greatest British LiteratureIncluding the authors and publications of England, Scotland and Wales.
The Greatest Canadian LiteratureComprising authors and publications from Canada.
The Greatest French LiteratureCovering authors and publications from France.
The Greatest Irish LiteratureIncluding the authors and publications of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
The Greatest German LiteratureCovering authors and publications from Germany.
The Greatest Latin American LiteratureIncluding the authors and publications of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and other countries of Latin America.
