Crrritic! : Sighs, Cries, Lies, Insults, Outbursts, Hoaxes, Disasters, Letters of Resignation and Various Other Noises Off in These the First and Last Days of Literary Criticism Paperback

Edited by John Schad, Dr. Oliver Tearle

Description

Oscar Wilde famously spoke of 'the critic as artist' whilst Terry Eagleton once celebrated 'the critic as clown'. This exciting new volume brings together a range of writings that seek to radically re-imagine the often pale figure of the literary critic. In doing so we here glimpse a host of unfamiliar figures from the critic as pedestrian to the critic as suicide through the critic as revivalist and even the critic as bodger. The result is a book that seeks to locate the truly critical critic -- or, to be paradoxical, the critic as critic; the critic who is a critic of criticism as conventionally understood. This is the final volume of the immensely successful 'Critical Inventions' series.
