The Authors in the Dictionary quiz

Quizzes |    

Progress: 1 of 16 questions


Some authors have managed to make such an impression on us that they ended up in the dictionary. This is a quiz on eponyms, more specifically on adjectives named after famous authors. Do you know what they mean?

The thing with these types of words is that they are bound to exaggerate certain elements of an author's style or subject choice while ignoring others and they are always up for discussion. However I tried to circumvent ambiguities but still keep it challenging and create a fun quiz. I hope you enjoy it!

Which of the following is most likely to be used in describing something that is romantic and sensuous?
