This chapter explains and examines the changes in the theory and practice of critical writing. It describes the nature of institutional and intellectual authority in critical discourse in the final decades of the nineteenth century. It examines the sociology of knowledge in Britain from the 1870s to the 1890s. It argues that such a methodology might possess a general applicability, particularly for understanding the practice of literary criticism at the present time.

Keywords:   critical writing, critical discourse, intellectual authority, institutional authority, nineteenth century, criticism
