This chapter considers Byatt's critical output and its manifold intersections, both with the institutionalised study of literature in university departments and with the modern book market. It explores Byatt's role as public intellectual and sheds some light on the concept of ‘critical storytelling’. This chapter also describes her commitment to the paradigm of dialogical criticism, or criticism as conversation.

Keywords:   critical output, study of literature, modern book market, public intellectual, critical storytelling, dialogical criticism, criticism as conversation
