BEST CONTEMORARY ESSAY ARTISTS

Luca Graziuso and Marina Ross
The list author says: "The art of the essay has been a staple of the English language since the time of the illustrious and whimsical periodicals, The Spectator chief among these, and the essays of Samuel Johnson, although some may wish to find in Bacon, Locke and Hume more worthy proponents of the art, it is in the underpinnings of wit and the wealth of trivialities that such essays dig deep within the strata of our human condition, the absurdities, the animal faith and the busy diversions, all to find at the core something too brief and too grand to ignore."
