If anything it may be more insightful than not. I most certainly have not read Twilight, and while I own a copy of Middlemarch, I have NOT read it. I remember classmates reading The Crucible but I have only a dim memory of it myself. It was definitely news to me to read in the Guardian article that it was intended as a commentary on anti communism in the McCarthy Era but given what I know of that topic from another angle NOW it makes sense.

(we are in the States now) I just couldn't help but make a note of how 20th century American lit is described by the literate classes in the UK…Lol! Politics and cultural commentary knows no bounds!
