What is Literary Criticism?
According to the Internet Public Library, "Literary criticism is the evaluation, analysis, description, or interpretation of literary works. It is usually in the form of a critical essay, but in-depth book reviews can sometimes be considered literary criticism. Criticism may examine a particular literary work, or may look at an author's writings as a whole." When we examine literary criticism in class, I will ask you to find what actual "critics" have thought while reading the same book you just did - Lord of the Flies.
