Critique vs. Criticism
  • Criticism attacks/Critique examines
  • Criticism looks for what's lacking/Critique finds what's both working and lacking
  • Criticism condemns what it doesn't understand/Critique seeks clarification
  • Criticism is spoken with a cruel wit and sarcastic tongue/Critique's voice is honest without being rude
  • Criticism is vague and general/Critique is concrete and specific
  • Criticism looks for flaws in the writer as well as the writing/Critique addresses only what is on the page
  • Criticism only points out problems/Critique points out problems while seeking to give answers
