I have been looking through the lists of banned authors on various sites and getting very excited. I will start off gently and have picked six authors who will meet the rules and that I know I have or am reasonably certain I can get hold of. I am certain to increase the number of banned authors I own over the next year, so this list may be a work in progress. I am a little peeved, though, that I have just waded my way through Emmanuel Swedenborg's The Universal Human and Soul-Body Interaction, when if I had left it a month I could have included it as part of the challenge!
Here we go, England, Ireland and France:
Francis Bacon: Essays
John Stuart Mill: On Liberty
Laurence Sterne: Journal to Eliza
Jonathan Swift: A Tale of a Tub
Alexandre Dumas: The Count of Monte Cristo
Victor Hugo: Les Miserables
I may also re-read Machiavelli's The Prince.
The book I really, really want from the list is Defoe's The History of the Devil, so if I manage to get a copy I'll also include this.
