Famous literary last bows

I have read all over the internet the news about Philip Roth’s literary retirement (“Nemesis” is his last novel). Guardian, starting from this announcement, established a list of the most famous literary exits. Among them you can read about Shakespeare’s withdrawal and Orwell’s total commitment to his novel “1984”(finished on his deathbed).

I cannot help admire their courage, determination and integrity.
