I'll start: Dr. Seuss
My interpretation of the intent of this thread is to name and praise monumental authors, such as Shakespeare, so.
Ayn Rand who's masterpiece Atlas Shrugged has sometimes been acclaimed as the second most (important, edifying, read, influencial) book in existance, following the Bible.
Despite critical scorn and continued derision from intellectuals, progressives and ignoramuses, Atlas has remained a popular favorite and today sells more copies than it ever did.
Why? Because, as evidenced by pointed and frequent references to Rand and Atlas Shrugged in the media, an increasing number of people see their society devolving into a nightmare scenario much like the one Rand projected over a half century ago.

“Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders; no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. . . . What is needed to stop the trend towards socialism and despotism is common sense and moral courage.” Ludwig von Mises

I like Shakespeare.
Seems more fitting to bad-mouth Jesus' mum. He's the father of English lit, drama, theater and the inspiration for half the thespians in the fukin world.
I happen to rather like the bard. However, Thomas Middleton is also good and of the same era. The level of ultra violence in The Revenger's Tragedy is something to behold.

Daniel Bedingfield claimed that his new album is what it would sound like if Sting, Stevie Wonder and Micheal Jackson were in a basement together - I haven't got the album so I'll have to imagine the sound of a blind bloke and a Geordie kicking the shit out of a pedophile.
