Another author who became famous only after his death is John Kennedy Toole, who won a Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for "A Confederacy of Dunces" eleven years after his death by suicide.

Never heard of Du Fu, but I think I had some for dinner one time.

I think a lot of famous song writers would be lost in obscurity based on their lyrics alone. At least these people rose above that level to be remembered after their death.

Not too sure but wasn't one of the 'War poets' not famous until after he was killed.
