To me, this is a terrible waste of an interesting experiment. Richards gave unidentified literary passages to ordinary people for evaluable, but instead of respecting their responses, he used them as material for snobbish condemnation of their literary judgment. Personally, I believe the only objective criterion of literature is its effect on readers, and I think these readers' opinions deserved more serious consideration. Maybe "Festus" is better than Richards thi=ought. ( )
