In the beginning, a human told a story, and another human said it was not good. Thus was born the tradition of literary criticism, which is what we’re talking about today. We’ll discuss the different schools of criticism, whether reviews are a type of criticism, and what criticism is even for. We’ll also dis on Aristotle a little, which means it’ll be a great episode for sure.
