Actually, it's interesting how many 20th Century Canonical White Male Literary Giants had strong hair. From Ezra Pound to Samuel Beckett. Maybe evidence of a hairist bias?

Henry James is about the only other baldy that I can think of.

Foucault, Ballard, Bellow was pretty bald, Ken Kesey - off the top of my head (sorry!)

Surely Foucault was a skinhead rather than a bald man

A crâne rasée rather than a chauviste

"Hmm, I wonder who just started a thread titled 'BALDNESS in the ARTS'?", said no-one ever.

Burroughs was virtually bald in later life, wasn't he? Ditto Terry Pratchett, although it was almost invariably covered by a big hat.

ingmar bergman...although later in life, had a decent head of hair earlier in his career. i imagined woody allen would be bald by now, but he still has hair in all the photos i found.

receding hairline.

Or an 'expanding forehead', as my dad used to claim.

Oh dad, you card!

I will never be bald. Good genes. Hair is something to celebrate. Losing it is a tragedy that, unlike teeth, can't be avoided but can, in certain cases, be made into an advantage. But it's never a gain.

I think beards are salvation for the bald

Though hipsters might have ruined beards in recent years, the bald with a beard look is one of the best the modern gentleman can adopt IMO
