Huh. Kind of like what the English Romantics did for literature in the 19th century. I often wondered if those writers were really that good, or just what everyone knew and was comfortable with, like pop music, but for books.
You were tested on Last of the Mohicans not because it was any good, but because like five percent of the ninety percent that were literate of the thirty percent that were northerners of the seventy percent who were white of the eight million people in the United States read it 200 years ago. So like 80,000 people.
