4 Albert Camus
Albert Camus (7 November 1913 – 4 January 1960) was a French philosopher, author, and journalist. He is best known for such novels as L’Étranger (The Stranger, 1942), La Peste (The Plague, 1947), and La Chute (The Fall, 1956). He received the 1957 Nobel Prize for Literature.
Camus grossly misunderstood the rebellious spirit, the drive toward liberty, as collectivist; as requiring even one kindred spirit, let alone the many Camus suggests, in order to even exist, let alone be valid.
5 John Steinbeck
John Ernst Steinbeck, Jr. was an American author of twenty-seven books, including sixteen novels, six non-fiction books, and five collections of short stories.
A bit enigmatic, but at bottom, seems to have been a left-leaning liberal who stopped short of embracing communism, mindful still of his close association with and endorsement by the communist movement in America. Think, however, that "East Of Eden" was sophomoric in its transparently veiled parody of Genesis, and probably the first major fictional work (and film) to give wide exposure to a post-Nietzschean agenda of literati and intelligentsia mocking and vilifying Christianity, which is reaching crescendo today.
6 Thomas Eliot
Thomas Stearns Eliot, OM, (26 September 1888 – 4 January 1965) was an American-born British essayist, publisher, playwright, literary and social critic, and one of the 20th century's major poets.

9 Gabriel García Márquez
Gabriel José de la Concordia García Márquez (6 March 1927 – 17 April 2014) was a Colombian novelist, short-story writer, screenwriter and journalist. ...read more.
A close friend of Fidel Castro. This and this alone destroys all credibility regarding any of his "works," and highlights the fact that since it's inception, the Nobel "committee" has been nothing more than a "legitimizing" imprimatur for global communism.
10 Samuel Beckett
Samuel Barclay Beckett (13 April 1906 – 22 December 1989) was an Irish avant-garde novelist, playwright, theatre director, and poet, who lived in Paris for most of his adult life and wrote in both English and French. He is widely regarded as among the most influential writers of the 20th century.

13 Thomas Mann

Responsible for laying the groundwork for the massive failure that is and has been public education.
14 André Gide
15 George Bernard Shaw
George Bernard Shaw, known at his insistence simply as Bernard Shaw, was an Irish playwright, critic, polemicist, and political activist. His influence on Western theatre, culture and politics extended from the 1880s to his death and beyond.
There is, however, one particularly pleasing and contextually ironic quote from Shaw: "Hell is full of musical amateurs."
The man's very name causes decent people to see red. Shaw was a despicable creature, a statist eugenist along with contemporary "progressives" Margaret Sanger, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Bertrand Russell, H.G. Wells, who built upon the evil of Thomas Malthus. Among other things, Shaw was an early proponent (1934) of employing gas chambers to exterminate people whom elitist scum like Shaw deemed "unfit to live." Hitler and Himmler thought it was a great idea, to the tune of 6 million Jews and 7 million Gentiles. Nice pick.
16 Jean-Paul Sartre
Jean-Paul Charles Aymard Sartre (June 21, 1905 – April 15, 1980) was a French philosopher, playwright, novelist, political activist, biographer, and literary critic.
"I do not believe in God; his existence has been disproved by science." Here Sartre has violated a basic tenet of logic: a negative cannot be proved. One can prove only that something DOES exist, never that it DOESN'T. His statement is a patent falsehood, then as now.
17 William Golding
18 Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
19 Selma Lagerlöf
20 Winston Churchill
Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill was a British statesman who was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. Churchill was also an officer in the British Army, a historian, and a writer.

Another communistic "thinker," whose admiration for and friendship with Freud speak volumes for the quality of his "thought," though his own words tend to indict him sufficiently.
27 Mikhail Sholokhov
Yet ANOTHER communist (a Stalinist, in fact), a party leader and good pal of both Uncle Joe and Khrushchev. Does much more need be said about the legitimacy of the Nobel Prize?
28 Imre Kertész
29 Elias Canetti
30 Hermann Hesse
