Literary Critics Have So Much Fun

Literary Critics Have So Much Fun! Literary critics have so much fun telling every writer and poet how they approve or disapprove of each writer and poet's works giving constructive and destructive criticism to each one advising them that each one sucks or is magnificent either lacking complete talent as a writer and poet or being truly talented as a writer and poet writing good and bad reviews sometimes even steering potential readers and buyers of books away because they read this or that literary critics review and took it as an absolute truth instead of buying and reading the book in order to make his or her own mind up about the book defining what is good and bad literature expecting everyone else to adhere to their criticism as if it is an absolute truth just because their opinion is a fact to each literary critic allowing their biases to cloud their judgements on all things literature benefiting and condemning whomever's careers they want to because this or that work doesn't fit in their perfect biased categorisation making it seem to be utter nonsense one must always wonder and ponder on who made them the writer and poet gods and goddesses of their time and especially today?

Being human this is such a big part of how we judge everything. "allowing their biases to cloud their judgements ". The first step is to KNOW this. Nice.

Precisely and we aren't perfect and never will be perfect but we may always write however we want too. Thanks again, Caren!
