Six Critics Doing Their Thing in the New York Times Book Review

I can’t vouch for all of these, because I’m a slow reader, but there’s some great stuff in the New York Times Book Review’s collection of six critics tasked with explaining the role of criticism to literature today.  According to Stephen Burn, you, yes you, sitting at your computer, are having an effect on the way that criticism is adapting to the present day.  But does technology really change anything?  Talk amongst yourselves.
