Subject:        Performance Criticism?
 
I decided to assemble a bibliography of "performance criticism" for a course
I'm teaching, and I must confess that I'm surprised by the difficulty I'm
having.
 
I've not had difficulty in finding instances of usage of the term "performance
criticism," but in these instances the term is generally used axiomatically.
What are the origins of the term, the concept? Where have critics offered
definitions of the term?  Where are the best (and/or worst) examples of
"performance criticism"?
 
Secondly: is performance criticism possible...?
