A.

C, D and E change meaning. B is not correct for "as....".

Hmm....interesting. Is it because "unpublished" is not a recognized word and "not publish" should be used?

Interesting. I initially thought C but then I switched to A because I misread the sentence and thought the he is modest and his poetry is unpublished are parallel. He and his are not parallel. need to slow down.

His poetry is not published because he is modest and that's what C exactly conveys.

unpublished is a correct word.

the meaning is distorted in A. He was probably a very good poet, and knew that, but chose not to publish his work. And that is what makes him modest.

Definitely, its between A and C, only idiomatic choices, but A has a very slight twist in meaning.

(A) Although he is as gifted as, if not more gifted than, many of his colleagues, he is extremely modest and his poetry is unpublished.
(C) Although he is as gifted as, if not more gifted than, many of his colleagues, he is extremely modest and will not publish his poetry.
