After his successful first novel, critics lionized the young writer as a literary virtuoso, though he has yet to replicate the feat. what's the meaning of "he has yet to replicate the feat"? many thanks......
To replicate is do make an exact copy of.
I wonder how this can be applied to literary works. I mean, what is the point of making an exact or similar copy of a novel?
Another word to use is 'emulate' which is to equal or better.

This is quite a sentence!
After his successful first novel, critics lionized the young writer as a literary virtuoso, though he has yet to replicate the feat.
Does he have to 'replicate' being lionised = being given a lot of public attention and approval; treated as a celebrity?
or, if it relates to the novel, then I wonder, how many 'first novels' can one write?
'replicate the feat' should have been something along the lines of 'proving this is not a flash in the pan.'
