Jameela, the interesting notion you float sounds very much like what is perhaps the central idea of Frank Kermode's The Classic. I take it he counts (as a Miltonist, that is).

Best

Pound said:  Poetry is news that stays news.

And by that, of course, he meant great poetry.

Carter,

You make me wonder if the definition of a classic work of literature should include the notion that it is always somehow current, but I imagine that this has been said, and even said by Miltonists.

Cheers,
