Not a bad list. However, what might well be the most important, in the sense of having had the greatest impact, is not on the list. It was written in the early 1920s by some German guy. And it was definitely not a force for good.

I was about to make the same comment as Don--where is MEIN KAMPF? Also missing, Oscar Wilde's "Ballad of Redding Gaol" (perhaps it didn't count because it was a poem) and "De Profundus".

And the article--as usual--needs a fact-checking edit. Yes, the word "sadism" is derived from de Sade, but the word "masochism" most definitely is not.

This is "Ten More . . . ." The earlier list probably had MEIN KAMPF on it.
