List of Authors Whose Copyrights Have Expired

The Flemish literary publication nY (formerly Yang) is putting together an issue around the central theme of authors whose copyright has passed because they've died more than 70 years ago, and whose works have subsequently entered the political domain, such as happened to James Joyce in 2012. Here is their (non-exhaustive) list consisting of authors that they thought would resonate with their readers. (via Samuel Vriezen)
