Let's face it: literary critics are tough nuts to crack. We've never met them, most of them are long gone, and all we have to go on is the mumbo jumbo they left behind.
Understanding what makes these smartypants tick is a tall order. But these ladies and gents brought us new ways of reading old books, and we definitely don't want to miss out on all that Shmoopy jazz.
So it's a good thing that when critics get online, they really let their hair down. And since Shmoop's got VIP access to their profiles, you can stalk them to your heart's content. And maybe learn to decipher all that mumbo jumbo while you're at it.
