Neglectorino or Underratino?

To say that a writer is neglected is not the same as saying that he is underrated, though the evidence for the assertion is the same in both cases, namely that he is not read. An underrated writer suffers from current fashions in taste, and the critic who would promote him must first change the fashion; a neglected writer suffers merely from public ignorance, and, to rescue him from neglect, it should be sufficient to make his work available to the public and draw attention to its existence. 
-- W.H. Auden
