Poetry as entertainment?

    I'm surprised that books and novels are under entertainment but not poetry, even under that subheading. Also, there's a category for criticism but not reviews, criticism being more academic (not to mention critical) than a review. Any chance these could be added ("poetry" somewhere under entertainment and "review" there as well)

      Hi Jen,

      Both books and poems are under the category:

      Books, Writing, and Literature

      There's no category for "review" because the term is ambiguous.  From a certain perspective, any book about any subject could could be a "review" about that subject.

      If you are planning to write a book review, I would suggest putting the category in "Books" and then put the term "Book Review" in the title.

      I do something similar when I write movie reviews.  I put it in the movie category and then I have "Movie Review: [movie name]" in the title.
