Fifteen famous authors who have scattered classical literature in the shadiest ways

However, these so-called classical fiction has caused some controversies over the years.
These are a few of the many occasions that famous authors have had the great works of the lit. Well, of course, some of these literary behemoths were just envious of each other. However, some of these authors have taken it upon themselves to mock classical works by authors who have long since died, to mock the famous fictions of their time and just to mock the general public about the remainder of the literary milieu.
