What the Advisory Board of the Pulitzer Prizes as well as the annual juries in this award category hoped for was to encourage also younger newspaper people to go in for critical writing in years to come Although it is too early to decide whether this gentle aim could be realized through this Pulitzer Prize category, the deeper sense behind establishing the new award in the beginning seventies also might have been a question of image-lifting for a sometimes hated journalistic profession "Critic baiting, like riding to hounds," George N Gordon said, "is an old and honorable sport that has it roots in Periclean Athens, if not before Its antiquity derives from the fact that artistic criticism is certainly as old as the arts possibly older, because the absence of anything to criticize has never stood in the way of the confirmed and devout critic The trouble with criticizing critics is that it is all too easy to poorly Critics are vulnerable, and they may be 'proved' wrong in too many ways A movie that receives a negative critical reception can make monkeys out of the most prestigious reviewer simply by pleasing a large or notable audience Press critics with few exceptions tend to hit and VI run A living dangerously too, critic but is, safer however, Criticizing than misinterpreting a man being standards a of or woman critics critic who is This evaluation, must enjoy dangerous peril work stems finding from biases and misconstructions that not exist " This book - covering outstanding critical the history writing of the Pulitzer Prize in different cultural for fields during two decades - demonstrates and documents several of the potential stories conflicts behind of the critics, stories too seem to In be several as cases, fascinating the as the award-winning articles
