T.S. Eliot once said that only poets should criticize poetry. This received a classic put-down in an essay I thought was entitled "Is Criticism Possible?" by, I thought, C.S. Lewis, but I have been unable to find it in his bibliography. I would like to know the title of the essay, the author, and where I can find it. Thanks.

C.S. Lewis did indeed write an essay with the title: "Is Critiism Possible", and it appears as Chapter II of his book, "Preface to Paradise Lost" (Oxford Press, 1942). You can see a mention of this work, here: http://worldviews.alerque.com/AncientEpic in the "Other Ressources" section, and you can see a few actual pages from the book at amazon.com, as long as you are registered at their site. The direct link to the table of contents (which should work if you are registered) is: http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/0195003454/ref=sib_rdr_toc/103-1949475-4292601?%5Fencoding=UTF8&p=S002#reader-link Let me know if you need any additional information or clarification of the information I have presented here. Thanks. pafalafa-ga
