    such as Joyce and Faulkner

    Is this sentence correct:

    1) Things began to change when such as Joyce and Faulkner came along who began experimenting with literature in a new way.
    meaning:
    Things began to change when people such as Joyce and Faulkner who began experimenting with literature in a new way came along .

    Gratefully,
    Navi.
