Developed for media writers assigned to review an artistic event or performance, this guide takes writers through the necessary steps for producing an acceptable review of fine and performing arts. Titchener (U. of Houston, emeritus) suggests ways to approach familiar and unfamiliar art forms. In this third edition, he uses current examples from journalists and veteran critics. The text is appropriate as an element of journalism coursework or as a resource for practicing journalists. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
