AQ 237 = CRITICISM, INC. (Fifty years ago the poet-critics talked and the professors listened. In "Criticism, Inc.," AQ-326 JOHN CROWE RANSOM condemned the lack of thoughtful, professional literary criticism in the U.S. and called on academia to fill the gap. "It is from the professors of literature, in this country the professors of English for the most part," he wrote, "that I should hope eventually for the erection of intelligent standards of criticism. It is their business... [and] its proper seat is in the universities."1 The professors, under the direction of poet-critics and journals such as Poetry, which printed a three-part primer on the New Criticism during the winter of 1948-49, did make criticism their business, and by the mid-1950s, as James E.B. Breslin notes, "Criticism, Inc. had arrived."2 But having incorporated itself as part of the university, Criticism, Inc. soon became a privately held company; Review: Fighting "Theory, Inc.": The Situation of the Poet-Critic; Reviewed Work(s): Criticism in the University by Gerald Graff, Reginald Gibbons; Author(s) of Review: Marianne Eismann, Contemporary Literature, Vol. 29, No. 2 (Summer, 1988), pp. 311-317; AQ-253 NEW CRITICISM) = PERIPHRASIS (And I can’t say that Álamo was much of a critic either, even though he talked a lot about criticism. Really I think he just talked for the sake of talking. He knew what periphrasis was. Not very well, but he knew. But he didn’t know what pentapody was (a line of five feet in classical meter, as everybody knows), and he didn’t know what a nicharchean was either (a line something like the phalaecean), or what a tetrastich was (a four-line stanza). How do I know he didn’t know? Because on the first day of the workshop, I made the mistake of asking.; The Savage Detectives by Roberto Bolaño, translated by Natasha Wimmer)
