Off the Well-Worn Path (Authors A-G)

If you want to get a little off the beaten track with your reading, this list is for you (I had to make dozens of new icons). The challenge includes many lesser known works of famous authors. But there are still enough favourites to keep your clicking finger satisfied. Alphabetical by author's first name!
I have absolutely no recollection of where I got this list, so I can't provide a link. Two more parts to follow.
BTW, a note for the literati. Several of the entries are believed to be the source or 'inspiration' for Shakespeare plays: Romeus & Juliet, The Pecorone (The Merchant of Venice), Hecatommithi (Othello, Measure for Measure).
