While working back and forth on these many webpages, items kept appearing for authors of Great Britain and France,
with nowhere to cross-reference them. Thus a page for British authors was created in Spring 2012, and this page for French authors
was created in early 2013. This page serves two intentions: to pay homage to the many French writers & poets & playwrights who
have influenced American literature and-or American life during the past 200-plus years, and also to the many French authors who
provided source material for so many major Hollywood feature films.
