No text is a 'classic' when published for the first time. Classics are done by the readers through the passing of time. Though their readings and re-readings ensue from one generation to the another, they are not result of a ramdom selection. On the contrary, the texts which become classics bear a mysterious attraction that keeps them from suffering time's wearing out and being forgoten. Readers are not passive recipients of an immutable discourse. And in every new historic circumstance when a new reading is done, it assigns a significantly or just slightly different value to the classics from the original one they had.
