Look What FLG Stumbled Across In His Morning Internet Browsing

A Rehearing for Rousseau by RITA KOGANZON

Canonical authors, it seems, are always on trial. Not only do they face a jury of contemporary readers disinclined to recognize their greatness, but they must re-argue their case with every succeeding generation that charges them with irrelevance. As the arbiters in this tribunal are biased and the prosecutors zealous and unprincipled, a skilled and tenacious advocate can be an extraordinary asset.

The best part is when the author replies.
