    I've noticed that of all the Great Music and Great Writers, I haven't seen or heard a Beethoven, Bach, Mark Twain or Jane Austen. The works seem to focus a lot on non-Western artists and writers; I had never heard of Yamoda Kengyo, Vyasa, Alla Rakha or Yoshida Kenko until now.

    Beethoven's Fifth is one of the great works of music, and I know I've seen a Jane Austen. I think it's less that they've focused on non-Western works, and more that they have avoided the usual predominance of Western works in these sorts of lists.

    One of Bach's Brandenburg concertos is there, but I've only seen it once.

    I've had Uncle Tom's Cabin pop up twice in different playthroughs.

    I had a game where mark twain wrote huckleberry finn, not sure if that's really lucky or they always produce their own great works if available.
