CRITICAL WRITING, ESSAYS, REVIEWS

 

Writing - a Method:

In order to situate and clarify my Theoretical Position, articulating through Description, Criticism and/or Analysis, which compels a somewhat eclectic, inclusive, "catholic" (little 'c')non-rhetorical  position, free from any bias based on "style" per se, I tried to capture a sense of Subject in giving Titles to my pieces/reviews/essays which hopefully made my Intentions clear.
