A somewhat misleading subtitle, for many of the titles discussed have indeed been published, though some of them have not been finished, including In Search of Lost Time, for instance, and The Canterbury Tales, and The Faerie Queen. All in all, an interesting enough list, with the inclusion of some rather obscure authors and titles that sounded interesting. A book worth keeping around for future reference.
Read as bedtime reading, for which it was ideal. Short essays of 2 to 4 pages on each book, from a variety of authors, but edited to be consistent in tone.
I will remember that the editor often had to stretch quite a bit to consider books as either unfinished (where else can "Kubla Khan" go?) or unpublished (see above titles).
