Appendix D: The Chaotic Age, Pt 7: Latin America, Africa, India, Canada, Oceania (Harold Bloom's Western Canon)

Bloom's final appendix is by far the largest and, as he says, the most uncertain. It aims to cover all twentieth-century Western lit. (While it obviously contains scores of authors who've continued to publish into the 21st Century, the appendix was originally published in 1994, and so the works listed are necessarily confined to the 20th.) I'm splitting it into several parts, continuing here with a very wide square-mileage: basically the entire Southern Hemisphere plus the Caribbean and Canada. Please don't add anything to this list that doesn't appear in Appendix D under the headings 'Latin America'; 'The West Indies'; 'Africa'; 'India (in English)'; 'Canada' or 'Austalia and New Zealand'.
