Missing masterpieces : an article about the great works of literature that didn't make it.

A little off topic but I was just blown away by this - its an article - originally from the Independent that forms a narrative of what we know of the works of literature that were, destroyed, lost or somehow didn't make it into the 21st Century.

From Confucius's 'Book of Music' to Sylvia Plath's 'Double Take' this article weaves a haunting narrative of what once was and isn't any more.

The Australian: Missing masterpieces [October 22, 2005]: "Missing masterpieces"

The missing books that facinate me are the missing books of the Bible.

Heresy to some, a conspiracy to others and a facinating historical mystery to me.
