Major American Writers
The honored title of "Major American Writer" tends to be ambiguous and ill defined in part because each individual reader holds preconceived notions about what characteristics a writer should possess to be classified as a major author. Every work an author creates combines with the others to form a body of material on which the writer is judged.

wonderful writer does not have the exemplary qualities to merit the title. One author I believe would be a great addition to the list of "Major American Writers" is Toni Morrison. Her work reaches people and explores the deepest recesses of the human spirit ranging from goodness to evil. Her magnificent style and eloquence translate themselves to the reader as enjoyment and understanding. Her impact on literature and people will be severe and long lasting.
