Critics on Criticism

Why Criticism Matters
Six critics examine the place of criticism in the age of instant, ubiquitous opinion­.
In the Book Review this weekend, we asked six essayists to consider the question: What is the role of the critic today? In an accompanying feature, “Masters of the Form,” we briefly surveyed, through a series of quotations, the pantheon of critics who have puzzled over this same question — Alfred Kazin in 1960, T.S. Eliot in 1923, Matthew Arnold in 1864, as well as several in between.
