We' re now presenting the ten best English writers who would have secured England's place at the top of the literary ladder, even without the Bard of Avon. This was no simple job, as there have been so many English writers over the years and the end result is a very personal one.
Well, in no particular order, here is our selection of the 10 best English authors of all time: Other great English writers are intimately associated with the English literary world and could have been added to this register if they had been borne in England. Authors such as Iren, James Joyce, William Butler Yeats, Jonathan Swift and Oscar Wilde and the American T.S. Eliot.
