Angry critics have existed since there have been newspapers and book reviews. Their “hatchet jobs” are perceived in two ways – some see them as ill-willed and aggressive, while others admire them for their entertainment value and confrontational spirit. From time to time critics are undoubtedly enraged by the books they review.
Choleric Quartet will discuss – and perhaps demonstrate – how the rage of the choleric critic can function either as productive and inspiring or destructive and transgressive. Participants will be the critic and translator Preben Jordal, the critic Thula Kopreitan and the critic and professor Frode Helmich Pedersen. Professor Eirik Vassenden will chair the conversation.
The event will be in Norwegian.
Thula Kopreitan will be replaced by Sandra Lillebø.
