Re: Which of these people will be remembered the most for countless years to come?
I think so too, but at the very least my point is that he's so entrenched that his fame isn't going to diminish in the next 2-500 years imo. Maybe longer. Even if you think he sucked as a writer.
Like I said, play actors have to learn his material. It's like all people want to see.
Including all the musicians from 200+ years ago, you could say he was the most prolific "composer" of them all. He just used words instead of music.
