Literary Criticism Doesn’t Have to Be Stupid (Either)

Filed under: Uncategorized — Fritz @ 5:19 pm

Over at Acephalous, SEK takes Ben Shapiro to task for being such a stupid curmudgeon at such a young age.  SEK writes,

There’s much Updike wrote I won’t defend—Toward the End of Time deserved the slagging it received—but for Young Master Shapiro to choose, from a hefty body of work, the opening paragraph of Rabbit Redux to bury Updike beneath should stand as the object lesson in why movement conservatives whose tastes range from Forsythe to Uris ought not be writing about literature.

Read it for yourself.  And then think about where your expertise lies before you post.
