When it comes to the writers, I can’t rank them. They are all equally good and I love them all.
These are in no particular order:
Jonathan Swift- Gulliver’s Travels was the first work by Jonathan Swift I read
Oscar Wilde- I read him the first time in junior high, The Importance of Being Ernest
George Bernard Shaw- I read Pygmalion for a high school lit. class
James Joyce- Ulysses was assigned in a different lit. class
C. S. Lewis- I first read him in elementary school with The Chronicles of Narnia
