The test group will be compared to a control group. The chosen control group is also referred to as the gold standard. It is what I have chosen as the testable criteria of a classic versus non-classic. Some of the criteria include the following of the subjects.
1.Original form released before 1980 - the duration of one literary generation; also the point of initiation for the post-post modernist literary era 2.Reproduced in some way, one of which must have been a movie
3.The work must be readily available in book stores.
4.The work must be appropriate for young adult audiences.
