This introduction contextualizes recent debates over the merits of critique and postcritique within literary and cultural studies. It develops various frameworks for evaluating those debates. In particular, it understands critique as a genre that can be characterized by a distinct style, tone, structure of analysis, and set of rhetorical conventions and vocabularies. While critique as a tradition is multiform, understanding it as a genre highlights some of its especially salient and recurring features. The introduction also considers three angles from which critique is being questioned: affect, politics, and method. Locating the current rethinking of method within larger intellectual and historical environments, the introduction concludes by suggesting some future agendas and directions for scholarship today.
