"There is this notion that good criticism (like the spurious Fox Cable News) must be "fair-and-balanced," whereas anyone who has ever written criticism knows that, to be respectful of the art form, it must be blunt, unequivocal and brutally honest -- even if it gives offense."( Swans Commentary |English vs. American Theatre Criticism by Charles Marowitz)

. . . oh so difficult to be blunt, unequivocal and brutally honest . . . courage i s demanded . . . trust in instincts & the intelligence of feeling . . .
