What 20th and 21st century writers or books do you believe will survive the test of time?
(This question is inspired in part by this question.)
There are great works of literature that have been passed down through many years. One only needs to consider The Iliad to see how long some literature can survive. There are many reading lists replete with the great books of the ages for perusing.
Some of those lists include 20th and 21st century works.
What do you think? What writers or books from the last or present century will still be read and enjoyed hundreds of years from now?
I realize we can’t know for sure, but I hope that the books of Anne Carson (especially Eros, the Bittersweet) will still be around. She has a body of work that is quite distinguished.
