Rulers of Literature 12” Ruler

A celebration of great writing, this clever wooden 12” ruler features a list of some of the most renowned authors in (mostly) Western canon. The ruler has inches and centimeters on one side and a list of literary “rulers” on the other.

Many styles of writing are represented here, from epic poetry to fiction and from plays to autobiographies. While most are English-language writers, there are also authors on this ruler who wrote in Sumerian, Greek, Chinese, Latin, Japanese, Italian, Spanish, French, German, Norwegian, and Russian. The dates listed are the years of each writer’s birth and death, if known.

The “head” image is of William Shakespeare (1564-1616), the Bard of Avon, much of whose extraordinary output has been translated into every major living language, and who popularized an uncanny number of English-language expressions that are still in use today. The illustration is based on the copper engraving by Martin Droeshout (1601-c.1650) that was used on the title page of Shakespeare’s collected works, the First Folio of 1623.
