The problem is that you don't have a way to restrict matches to only the author's name or some other criteria.
They need a filtering system, which was my whole point. Your example shows how useless their search engine is. Try searching for a classical author and then filtering through 1000+ hits, most of which have nothing to do with the author's works.
