Negative Criticism

Critic James Wood on negative criticism:

Also, never believe a writer when they say they don?t learn things from negative reviews. I am not just talking about fiction I am even talking about the reviews of my first book of essays. There is almost nothing?there are many things you disagree with but there will be something in very negative reviews of which you wince and say, ?Maybe that is a semi-true description.?
