Review

 

a critical evaluation of a new play, musical composition, or film or of a literary, scholarly, scientific, or popular-science work; also, a genre of publicist writing and literary criticism in newspapers and journals. A book review gives bibliographic information and briefly covers the work’s content, composition, and scope.

In the USSR, specialized publications of criticism and bibliography are issued as well. They include the newspaper Knizhnoe obozrenie and the journals V mire knig (The World of Books) and Literaturnoe obozrenie (Literary Review). The bibliographic index Letopis’ retsenzii (Chronicle of Reviews) has been published quarterly since 1935. Another type of review is the reader’s report, written for an editorial staff or publishing house. The reader’s report deals with a particular manuscript and is not intended for publication.

A review ends with a ceremonial parade march of the troops or ship crew.
