What kinds of critical insights are made possible only or especially via creative strategies? This volume examines how creative modes of writing might facilitate or inform new ways to critically engage with Shakespeare. Creative writing, demonstrated in a series of essays, reflections, stories and scenes, operates as a vehicle for exploring and articulating critical and theoretical ideas. In doing so, Shakespeare’s enduring creative and critical appeal is newly understood and critiqued.

There are four essays in the volume. The first, on "The New Criticism," is a statement of the New Freedom in the criticism of literature and art. The second, "Dramatic Criticism and the Theatre," applies this body of theory to the drama; and in the essay on "Prose and Verse" its application to 'vers libres' and to the whole question of metre is made clear. The last essay, on "Creative Connoisseurship," deals with the fine arts, and with the new ideal of "creative collecting."The author's works on criticism have been widely accepted abroad, and in one of Eden Phillpott's novels, "The Joy of Youth," the hero quotes with enthusiasm * the theories of "an honest critic, Spingarn, the American."-Seven Arts, Vol. 1

As practitioner-researchers, how do we discuss and analyse our work without losing the creative drive that inspired us in the first place? Built around a diverse selection of writings from leading researcher-practitioners and emerging artists in a variety of fields, The Creative Critic: Writing as/about Practice celebrates the extraordinary range of possibilities available when writing about one’s own work and the work one is inspired by. It re-thinks the conventions of the scholarly output to propose that critical writing be understood as an integral part of the artistic process, and even as artwork in its own right. Finding ways to make the intangible nature of much of our work ‘count’ under assessment has become increasingly important in the Academy and beyond. The Creative Critic offers an inspiring and useful sourcebook for students and practitioner-researchers navigating this area. Please see the companion site to the book, http://www.creativecritic.co.uk, where some of the chapters have become unfixed from the page.

Culture, Creativity and Environment: New Environmentalist Criticism is a collection of new work which examines the intersection between philosophy, literature, visual art, film and the environment at a time of environmental crisis. This book is unusual in the way in which the 'imaginative', 'creative', element is privileged, notwithstanding the creativity of rigorous cultural criticism. Genuinely interdisciplinary, this book aims to be inclusive in its discussions of diverse cultural media (different literary genres, art forms and film for instance), which offer thoughtful and thought-provoking critiques of our relationships with the environment. Our ability to transcend the ethical and aesthetic categories and discourses that have contributed to our alienation from our environment is dependant upon an enlargement of our imaginative capacities. In a modest way this book might contribute to what Ted Hughes, speaking of the imagination of each new child, described as “nature's chance to correct culture's error”.

Creativity is astir: reborn, re-conjured, re-branded, resurgent. The old myths of creation and creators the hallowed labors and privileged agencies of demiurges and prime movers, of Biblical world-makers and self-fashioning artist-geniuses are back underway, producing effects, circulating appeals. Much as the Catholic Church dresses the old creationism in the new gowns of intelligent design, the Creative Industries sound the clarion call to the Cultural Entrepreneurs. In the hype of the creative class and the high flights of the digital bohemians, the renaissance of the creatives is visibly enacted. The essays collected in this book analyze this complex resurgence of creation myths and formulate a contemporary critique of creativity.

This is a book about the creative dynamics that arise from the interrelation of writing, teaching writing, and ways of reading - and the scholarship and administrative issues engendered by both. To regard composition studies as a creative art is to engage in a process of intellectual or aesthetic free play, and then to translate the results of this play into serious work that yet retains the freedom and playfulness of its origins. The book is fueled by a mixture of faith in the fields that compose composition studies, hope that the efforts of composition teachers can make a difference, and a sense of community in its broadest meaning.
