Authors who Hit it Big After Death

Many of the authors we know and idolize today did not get recognition in their own day.

Some were mocked, exiled, and some died broke and unacknowledged. Though this may sound a bit sour, their legacies live on in modern writing which to an author is the best dream of all.

Many talented writers never find conventional success in their lifetime. Underappreciated literary geniuses can take comfort in one very special fantasy though—the glory of posthumous fame.
