Ebook Description

Ridiculous Critics offers an outline of eighteenth-century literary criticism that undermines its stuffy reputation. This history highlights the contempt, jocularity, irony, and buffoonery that also make up its critical spirit, with passages from critics, poets, novelists, and literary commentators celebrated and obscure.
