E is good.

A Does not sound as good as E
B is misplaced modifier
C. close...but 'consider as' is NOT the right idiom i thought
D. 'had' screws up the tenses
E. seems to be better than A. less passive.

"X considered Y" is the right idiom
E is prefered over D's past perfect tense

A, B are out -> bad comparison. It is comparing writings to poets
C -> wrong idiom
D -> Seems to compare writings to poets as well
E -> best choice. No problems with idiom, and comparison is correct
