"There are two conclusions, at opposite ends of a spectrum, that can be drawn from this. The first is that the elitist critic might be passing over some significant elements in works which make them resonate down through the ages. The second is that the common people are simply clueless as to what amounts to a good book. This roughly equates to the bourgeoisie regret that the unwashed masses were ever taught how to read."

And I don't find it contradictory in the least to think that both conclusions are usually right, in varying degrees, and at exactly the same time, in the same instances.

All the Best-
