I've noticed a lot of threads about introversion lately that are negative. So I think it will be good for our introverted brethren and sistren to list famous introverts from history or popular culture. Be prepared to back up your claims!
Note: The following is mostly guesswork on my part from exposure to the works of said person or writings about them. Feel free to criticize and the list will be altered.
Wrote the Divine Comedy about a man's trip through hell, purgatory, and finally to paradise.
Roman poet. Influenced Milton, Keats, Shakespeare, and Thoreau.
Poet, diplomat, philosopher.
Mathematician, inventor, philosopher. One of the "fathers of the computer."
Author, mathematician, Anglican cleric. Writer of Alice in Wonderland.
This is the point where I haven't had breakfast and go off to go get some. Perhaps I'll continue this later.
