One thing’s for sure, a classic is a classic because of its ability to remain fresh and fruitful among more recent literature. However, the definition of a ‘classic’ has been widely discussed over the course of history.
In 1850, a man named Charles Augustin Sainte-Beuve said that the idea of a classic implies something that has continuance and consistency, transmits itself and endures the course of time. A true classic enriches the human mind and is treasured with some deeper meaning, emitting moral lessons and unequivocal truths. The author must express his thoughts and observations in his own peculiar style, an unfamiliar style to the outside world, yet still making that classic unique from any other.
