I had to answer "i don't know" to most of the questions because if I hadn't read both of the works, i didn't want to choose one over the other. i have a master's in English and i think only one out of 20 comparisons i answered included two works i had read.

If you haven't read one of the books, doesn't that argue for it's lack of 'greatness?'
