FOL University - Dr. Merve Emre on "The Responsibilities of the Literary Critic" - University of Oxford professor and Schreiber H.S. graduate
What is the function of criticism at the present time? What, if any, are the responsibilities of the critic? To begin to answer these questions, this talk draws on the writings of exemplary literary critics of the past—T.S. Eliot, Virginia Woolf, Edmund Wilson, Elizabeth Hardwick—to map a future for criticism. It stresses the importance of judgment and justification, aesthetics and politics, and finally, the interrelation between life and literature. These questions will be explored by Professor Emre as part of the Friends of the Library’s popular FOL University series. (Please note this program was rescheduled from Nov. 14, 2021)

Jan 23, 2022 01:30 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
