You will post on the reaction you had about the two reviews that you read. You will be critiquing the critics.
I will attach the two reviews
what are some guidelines? Start by offering ideas of what you think is
the role of a critic. Is it where to spend your money? What to see?
Do you let them tell you what is good or bad? Are critics telling you
about all the symbolism you missed, or how the piece is genius but only
experts will get it, or how derivative this work is when compared to
trends? Do you understand what the critic is trying to say? Let me
know what you think critics are for, and then tell me what you thought
of the two Greenday reviews
you read. After you have told me what you thought of the reviews, you
will then tell me WHY you have that opinion of the reviews. You will
support your thesis statement with an objective view of your point of
view. You will observe, analyze and then comment on a review, then do
the same thing to yourself.
will be graded on your ability to state your point of view – and then
back that point of view up. This is not the defense of your doctoral
dissertation, but you need to start figuring out why things may (or may
not) appeal to you. You will also be evaluated on your understanding of
the tasks of critics, and how well those tasks were completed.
