Since nobody has mentioned them already, Jean-Paul Sartre and Wilhelm Reich are some notable writers that significantly contributed to anti-authoritarian thought: Reich for his psychological analysis of the sexually repressed reactionary mindset and the vicious cycle of patriarchal authoritarianism; Sartre for his ruminations on the meaning and consequences of personal freedom and the impetus for revolt. There are countless others that could rightly be considered as "anarchists" in spirit as well, like "marxist" writers Paul Lafargue or Alexander Bogdanov, avant-garde cultural figures like Antonin Artaud or George Bataille, and even official Anarchist Federation members like the chanson singer Georges Brassens and the horror-sexploitation director Jean Rollin. I could go on but those are just a few personal favs worth exploring.
