Litbits & Reviews
Reviews! That’s right: REVIEWS. I’ve said it twice now so it should be clear. But what do we mean? Well, centrally, this: what happens when Othello and Amazon Prime collide? How do online reviewers respond to the canon? And how does this, our present age, relate to the long history of judging books? James “Book Reviewer” Kidd (left) and Adam “Dabbler in said Art” Smyth (left, hand extended) gather once more to think about literary reputations, readers, and books in the world. HOW DO WE TALK ABOUT BOOKS IN THIS OUR FALLEN AGE? Pip pip and pass the jolly snuff.
