Book Reviews vs. Literary Criticism

Book reviews--articles intended to describe and criticize a book--are usually written shortly after the book appears. Some reviews, especially longer, scholarly reviews may take a year or longer to appear. To locate a book review, it is therefore necessary to know the date the book was published.

Literary criticism, on the other hand, may be written long after the book itself, perhaps centuries later. This guide pertains only to reviews, not to criticism.
