*Literary Critics should be the least of writers’ problems.

*Literary Critics are not gods, they are humans, so their appreciation of literary works are a function of their beliefs, etc.

*Critiques are not and should never be taken as holy writs. The best judges of literary productions should be the consumers, not the producers and/or the professional literary critics.
