Wikipedia:Brilliant prose

We think the following Wikipedia pages are pretty good. This is a selected list -- since there are over a hundred thousand pages on Wikipedia, we couldn't possibly keep track of all of the brilliant prose here! The notion of "brilliant prose", however, does not mean that these articles are "complete" in any sense -- each and every article can always be improved, so be bold in updating pages.

If you wish to add a new page to this list, please put it on Wikipedia:Brilliant prose candidates first (see that page for further instructions).

If you think an article here is mediocre at most or needs some more work, just remove it from this list, preferably with a comment why you think so. If you want to know the secrets about writing brilliant prose, read how to write a great article.
