Critical feedback on the article:
It needs to have been proofread by a native English speaker in order to make it read smoothly. Too many articles published in the field of Shīʿī Studies are done so in English that is not fluent, which lowers the quality immediately and limits the audience.
This article gives some general outlines and information about early exegetes of the Qur’ān, and their works, dating back to the time of the Minor Occultation. It discusses briefly their different approaches and also considers the issue of authenticity of tafsīrs. Not bad for initially acquainting oneself with the field, but does not live up to the title of the article.
