Allison What do you think are the criteria for a book to be considered a classic? Does it need to have deeper symbolism or can it be a moving story whose every detail we remember but don’t analyze?

This is definitely not specific to Foxfire. Over the years there have been many books that I have enjoyed "superficially" I guess. At some point I began to wonder what makes a classic...

Christina I think the term Classic pertains to the masses. If the work is not part of a wider genre, or does not relate to a particular audience is is not a classic. Foxfire is a classic JCO work I would argue, but I don't think it is a classic in and of its self.
