Feedback from stars is usually thought of as a crucially-important ingredient in models of star cluster formation and early evolution, being credited with disrupting clusters, terminating (and triggering) star formation, setting the IMF , making the cluster optically visible, etc. However, recent simulation results have cast doubt on feedback’s ability to do all of these things. I will discuss these issues and try to indicate what feedback can do, what it can’t do, and why it’s still important at star cluster scales and beyond.
