Nope. Wasn't nu then, having already been used in describing various genres of popular music. (See: nu-disco; nu-funk; nu-metal; etc. In fiction, see: nu-Earth. See also names of many business ventures going back at least as far as the 1960s; nu isn't new.)
As for literary criticism in general: I have long felt that any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel or a play or a poem is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae or a banana split. ~ Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
