Sometimes, when a work of literature creates some social conflict, it can affect more concrete things, especially law, which then has further consequences. It doesn't have to be a blockbuster case to have dramatic results.

In 1966, the Massachusetts Supreme Court overturned a lower court's recent decision and lifted its ban on William Burroughs' novel "Naked Lunch". That decision along with the earlier "obscenity trial" used the concept of "redeeming social value" as a yardstick to decidie what was "obscene" - a concept still used today.

How did the economy in England affect British literature during the Old English time period?

The Frisians or Anglo-Saxons utilized monks to write what they deemed as important chronicles. Since only trained monks could write, much of the literature during this period has a feel of history or chronicling. Use of the priests was judicious so the texts they wrote are very rare. Therefore, manuscripts from this time are very rare.
