Homer seems to be most people's ideal. In my mind there haven't been any better works since in any language. I have only a very shaky grasp of Greek, and so as yet I've only been able to read them in translation, but I have vowed to learn Greek, if only to read Homer.
I don't believe I've ever read any Charles Williams, but then again perhaps I've just forgotten. I have read the first two books of C.S. Lewis' space trilogy, though. Is his stuff science fiction? At the very least, I recall reading about him, and I had him in my mind as a sci fi guy.
A Voyage to Arcturus is so poorly written I'm surprised ANYONE's ever gotten through it.
I've not written enough, alas - it's the reason I was denied tenure last spring. But there's the Homer book, and also my dissertation, still looking for a publisher. It's on how Goethe read Homer. I also like to write poetry, but mostly comic verse.
