I see no problem with copious at all, and it seems obvious Rabelais doesn't fit here, the issue only arose as you mooted Bronte originally, who clearly doesn't fit either I think. None of the classical authors (Greeks and Romans) fit to my way of thinking either. Certainly not Homer, who perhaps wrote only one long poem (and another he may or may not have written).Maybe there's a problem with "copious." A better word would be "prolific." That does a better job of suggesting multiple distinct works. Could a moderator change "Copious" to "Prolific" in the thread title? I apologize for any confusion I caused by my original choice of a misleading word. My bad.
