Transcript of Sociological Criticism

Sociological Criticism It is a type of criticism that can include discussion of society, of social relationship and of historical affect. It shows the relationship between the artist and the society in which they live as society affects an artist. Examines the work of art in its social context and it also studies
its social effects. The critic is temped to condemn or praise a work accordingly as it harmonizes with his own personal convictions and theories. Sociological critics focus on: ideologies and experiences of people who lived in that time period and culture. How such references and commentaries (about society) function within the work of art. How society in various political “isms” distinguish between members of various races, social classes, sexes or culture. Few Questions to Consider as a Sociological Criticism: 1.) What world events play a role in the plot?
2.) How different is the society of the novel from our society?
3.) What different society groups are in the book?
4.) How do the different groups affect the political “ism” in society?
5.) How does this work comment on war, hunger, sex, religion , education, ethics?
