Most writing is attributed to an identifiable author, but what about when the author is unknown, or doesn’t wish to reveal their identity? These works belong to Anonymous—meaning that the text is of uncertain or undeclared origin. Some of the earliest written works are so old that their author cannot be determined, like Beowulf, an Old English poem written sometime between the 8th and 11th centuries. Some other works, such Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels, first appeared under anonymous origin because the author was fearful of how people might react. Many informational texts aren’t even credited with an author. This is often the case in technical writing about information or processes, but not ideas.

StudySync often presents short excerpts of modern texts. One objective of using these small samples is to encourage the reader to purchase the full work from the publisher, acquiring the experience of the author's work in its entirety, as the author intended. Reading an excerpt can never suffice for reading and gaining a critical understanding of the entire work. Direct links to distributors have been provided to facilitate the purchase of the full text.
