Sample Quotes on Literary/Arts Criticism:

Again and again I have been attacked for looseness, lack of beauty in my prose, and the one attacking me used, as the vehicle of attack, prose I would have been ashamed to write.

--Sherwood Anderson

If we wish to know the force of human genius, we should read Shakespeare,

If we wish to see the insignificance of human learning, we may study his commentators.

--William Hazlitt

The public is the only critic whose opinion is worth anything at all.

--Mark Twain

The important thing is that you make sure that neither the favorable nor the unfavorable critics move into your head and take part in the composition of your next work.

--Thornton Wilder

The person who is never criticized is not breathing.


It would be idle to deny that a word of praise, a word of thanks, sometimes a word of criticism, have been powerful factors in the lives of men of genius. We know how profoundly Lord Byron was affected by the letter of a consumptive girl written simply and soberly, signed with initials only, seeking no notice and giving no address; but saying in a few candid words that the writer wished before she died to thank the poet for the rapture his poems had given her.

--Agnes Repplier

Charles Dickens, the Shakespeare of the novel, has faced a constant critical attack as a result of his often sensational subject matter, his cheerful fecundity…and, of course, his success with the book-reading groundlings of his time and ours. Critics and scholars have always been suspicious of popular success.

—Stephen King

If criticism had any real power to harm, the skunk would have been extinct by now.

--Fred Allen
