We are trying to determine just what makes a book a classic on lit wit and I would not consider Poe to be classic but not sure just what the criteria are, any ideas for me?

To me classic means it stands the test of time. Ageless, if you will. I consider Poe's work to be classic.

May I copy and post your comment to lit wit or maybe its wit lit, duh! ???? We are trying to determine what a classic is. I agree with you, thanks.

Kathy  (readr4ever) | 4 comments I agree that classic means it stands the test of time, which is to say that people are still reading and talking about it long after the fact of its creation and its author's life. Poe's works definitely fit this definition. Ageless does succinctly sum it up, Christy.
