I don't think that either ML or EL would necessarily carry on that tradition, but either or both in combination would be a fairly good start at carrying on the unbroken tradition of "mainstream" literature. Think, however, of all the amazing works that never made it into these libraries and you realize that whoever recovers the ML and/or EL floating on the waters will miss out on a great many experiments and catalysts for change in literature.

  Can The Modern Library make such a statement?
  "A cosmic convulsion might utterly destroy all the other printed works in the world,and still if a complete set of Everyman's Library floated upon the waters enough would be preserved to carry on the unbroken tradition of literature" London Sunday Times
