Legacy: the Artists Behind the Legends

Have you ever read a novel, short story, poem, or narrative and then found yourself wondering about it's creator, their backstory, and what type of person could construct the piece of literature in your hands? 鈥媁ell, I know I have.鈥婤eing an avid book worm and all around knowledge-seeking nerd, I discovered one of my favorite things to do after completing either a series or a book that made me question life, reality, or morality as a whole, was to figure out who it was that crafted such a work. Everyone from the bizarre and twisted universe of Thompson to the devout and classic writings of Milton, Legacy investigates who these writers were and what sort of events impacted their lives and their writing, all to give you a bigger picture of context for your library. 鈥婮ust a forewarning: I am not choosing artists who had what I would deem as relatively ordinary existences. We are diving into the personal lives of people who I think are borderline on the crazy train, with experiences and stories that will shock you, awe you, make you laugh, and most importantly, maybe grasp a better understanding of what inspired their literature.
