Pleasure, Beauty, and Truth for kids ꘠ E-Pub Author A O Scott 맽 Maclean s Non Fiction BestsellerIn this book, as in his reviews, Scotts voice is genial, reasonable and self aware He elucidates complex ideas with snappy language Hes funny, but not cynical or snarky What he does especially well is explain how art develops and why our varied responses to it matter, pinpointing where criticism fits into the equation NewsdayMr Scott is very intelligent.What may matter is that Mr Scott is fun to read Scott says that the simple questionsalways with complex answersthat criticism poses are Did you feel that Was it good for you Tell the Truth He reminds us that critical judgments, like art itself, demand intellectual and sensuous, even sexual, responses Mr Scott answers his own demands Wall Street Journal Rousing and erudite San Francisco Chronicle Witty and thoughtful Reading Scott s book is like watching the stiff upper lipped hero of a British 1940s thriller facing down his or her adversaries modest, brave and utterly unflappable LA TimesIf we were looking for an intelligent, informed and often funny account of why we cant live comfortably with criticism in any of the words meanings , and cant live without it, either, we need look no further, and shall probably want to read this book than once New York Times Impassioned and deeply thoughtful.Scott lays out a taxonomy of meaningful thought and the meaning of thought itself.His disciplined reasoning, impressive erudition, and deep commitment to his art as he defines it are never less than provocative and elegantly articulated A zealous and well considered work of advocacy for an art too often unappreciated and misunderstood Kirkus This stunning treatise on criticism from New York Times film critic Scott is a complete success, comprehensively demonstrating the value of his arta necessary work that may enter the canon of great criticism Publisher s Weekly starred review From the Hardcover edition.The New York Times film critic shows why we need criticism now than everFew could explain, let alone seek out, a career in criticism Yet what A.O Scott shows in Better Living Through Criticism is that we are, in fact, all critics because critical thinking informs almost every aspect of artistic creation, of civil action, of interpersonal life With penetrating insight and warm humor, Scott shows that while individual critics himself included can make mistakes and find flaws where they shouldn t, criticism as a discipline is one of the noblest, most creative, and urgent activities of modern existence.Using his own film criticism as a starting point everything from his infamous dismissal of the international blockbuster The Avengers to his intense affection for Pixar s animated Ratatouille Scott expands outward, easily guiding readers through the complexities of Rilke and Shelley, the origins of Chuck Berry and the Rolling Stones, the power of Marina Abramovich and Ode on a Grecian Urn Drawing on the long tradition of criticism from Aristotle to Susan Sontag, Scott shows that real criticism was and always will be the breath of fresh air that allows true creativity to thrive The time for criticism is always now, Scott explains, because the imperative to think clearly, to insist on the necessary balance of reason and passion, never goes away A O Scott The New York
