Overview

Oscar Wilde famously spoke of 'the critic as artist,' while Terry Eagleton once celebrated 'the critic as clown.' Crrritic! brings together a range of writings that seek to radically reimagine the often pale figure of the literary critic. In doing so, the reader will 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 locates the truly critical critic - or, to be paradoxical, the critic as critic; the critic who is a critic of criticism as conventionally understood.
