The Critic as Critic

this page last updated 05.viii.2017

Reviewing began in THE OSCHOLARS in April 2002, with a gap between October 2003 and October 2006. The process of rescue and reposting here the reviews published on our earlier sites began in September 2016 and the transfer was completed in July 2017.  A number of reviews, however,  remain on our previous siteto which we no longer have access, and yet others seem to have been removed by our former webmaster beyond recovery.

The proliferation of our Critics’ pages made it necessary to split them into three sections.  For access to the tables of contents for each section, click on GO-I, GO-II or GO-III below.

§ I covers reviews of Wilde books, plays, exhibitions and miscellanæa. Latest addition(s) 05.viii.2017. GOI
