Special Guest: Terry Teachout


Saturday, April 17, 2004

Kurt Andersen and Terry Teachout explore the role criticism plays in the arts today, and how the internet is changing what it means to be a critic.  

Terry Teachout is the rare critic who covers music, dance, books, and the visual arts. He is a columnist for The Washington Post, drama critic for The Wall Street Journal, and a music critic for Commentary. The Terry Teachout Reader, a collection of his essays, has just been published by Yale University Press. The Skeptic is Teachout's biography of H.L. Mencken, and he is writing a biography of choreographer George Ballanchine. On the internet, Teachout writes a blog about the arts, updated constantly, called "About Last Night."
