Giacomo Leopardi is, for sure, one of the most famous authors of all time. Well, maybe for Italians.
Just to let you understand… do you know Dante? Yeah, the guy who wrote the “Divina Commedia”? Some movies are based on his works and he is considered to be the father of the Italian language. He's pretty famous in Italy. All Italian high school students study the “Divinia Commedia”, it's like the Bible of the Italian literature. Compared to Dante, Giacomo Leopardi has written so many works, which are so fascinating to analyze, full of hidden meanings, methapors, antithesises and other retoric figures.

"It's a game of running, yet not always all out.
It's a game of passion, yet under harness and rein.
It's a game of team, of passing and sharing.
It's a game supreme, this Beautiful Game".

The Divine Comedy is a great read.

currently Ernest Cline.

The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. - H. P. Lovecraft

I am a history buff. I like to read American biographies. My favorite author is David McCullough. Presently I'm read his "The Wright Brother". This dovetails with my love of aviation. Also I have read two of his biographies, "Harry Truman" and "John Adams". Both men were disliked when they were presidents. But, history has been kinder to them and their presidencies now are seen as a turning point in American history. If you like reading about American history, I would recommend reading any of McCullough's books.

It's a shame, but I even never heard about some writers mentioned here .. I love Jack London, Mark Twain, Oscar Wilde, Hemingway. I must confess I do not remember when I was reading something for the last time, I am blaming myself for that .. Want to dedicate this summer to reading, going to try fantasy fiction and to discover world of Tolkien and Martin (currently playing a quiz guess the writer trying to refresh my knowledge).

Fyodor Dostoevsky

I guess Shakespeare doesn’t count since he’s a playwright and poet

Yo! Shakespeare is amazing just have fun with it and enjoy his way with words. But Romeo and Juliet isn’t really one his best works. Try reading Macbeth or Hamlet or something like that. Or if u prefer comedies then Midsummer nights dream is pretty nice. Sry I’m a literature nerd. And I’m gonna say it’s a tie between Fyodor and Willy as my fav

See I like reading, but sometimes I read old stuff and go, huh? Like I don’t get what they mean. I just like more recent stuff I guess, or I need someone to explain things as they’re happening. We read part of Romeo and Juliet before and it was kind of hard to understand for me

Yeah I understand what u mean. A lot of the time, the issue is that there are allusions to stuff that aren’t obvious cuz it’s centuries old. Also his plays are written in iambic pentameter, so sometimes clarity is sacrificed for form. But trust me once u know what he’s saying it’s beautiful.
