70 Women of Genius

Several works worth knowing about. Nonfiction, prose and poetry. Favouring those with highly developed style and innovative material. Also including great writers pre-1800s. A large international breadth is lacking. Side note: one entry, The Owl, is in error, but unfortunately I cannot edit once published (Sadegh Hedayat is a great author, but was not meant for this list).
