Re your comment below:

"On the other hand, some classics endure despite the writing, whilst neglected masterpieces litter the literary landscape hoping that some day a publisher will rediscover them before they do, indeed, turn to dust."

This has come up before and I'll simply say what I said then. The test of time may not be a particularly good way of deciding what does and does not become a classic.

But it's the best way we've got.
