I'm looking for a commonly used expression for someone who reforms/revives literature. None of the versions I have come up with so far seem to yield a substantial number of hits in search engines. My ideas are

  • reformer of literature
  • reviver of literature
  • a literary reformer
  • a renewer of literature

  • Tell us your versions.

  • Literature is a totally vague word, given the published poundage annually. How much is literature? And, once you've got that solved, how does one "reform" or "revive" it? When you've answered these questions is the time to look for an agent noun. Until then, none seems obvious. 2 days ago
  • It's not clear what you're asking because what you mean by "reforms/revives literature" is wholly unclear. 2 days ago
  • The context is "XY is considered to be the reformer of Slovak prose/lierature." Whether one person can refrom (the current trends of) a country's literature, or what the author precisely means by this is not for me to decide, but in my opinion everyone should have a vague idea of what the idea implies.
