Bad Art, Its Cause and Cure

David Bromwich, Sterling Professor of English, Yale University
RKC 103  5:00 pm
Aesthetic judgment presumes that there is such a thing as bad art, and that it warrants careful description and analysis; with examples from 19th- and 20th-century poetry, didactic criticism and its opponents, and one or two recent Hollywood films.
