Harold Bloom is Sterling Professor of the Humanities at Yale University. He is the author of 30 books, including Shelley's Mythmaking (1959), The Visionary Company (1961), Blake's Apocalypse (1963), Yeats (1970), A Map of Misreading (1975), Kabbalah and Criticism (1975), Agon: Toward a Theory of Revisionism (1982), The American Religion (1992), The Western Canon (1994), and Omens of Millennium: The Gnosis of Angels, Dreams, and Resurrection (1996). The Anxiety of Influence (1973) sets forth Professor Bloom's provocative theory of the literary relationships between the great writers and their predecessors. His most recent books include Shakespeare: The Invention of the Human (1998), a 1998 National Book Award finalist, How to Read and Why (2000), Genius: A Mosaic of One Hundred Exemplary Creative Minds (2002), Hamlet: Poem Unlimited (2003), Where Shall Wisdom be Found (2004), and Jesus and Yahweh: The Names Divine (2005). In 1999, Professor Bloom received the prestigious American Academy of Arts and Letters Gold Medal for Criticism. He has also received the International Prize of Catalonia, the Alfonso Reyes Prize of Mexico, and the Hans Christian Andersen Bicentennial Prize of Denmark.From Library Journal:
Like Prentice-Hall's "Twentieth-Century Views," this new series, "Modern Critical Views," attempts to present the best criticism available on selected contemporary authors. The two volumes under review each contain nine previously published essays, many by prominent critics: the Salinger volume includes work by Alfred Kazin and David Galloway (The Absurd Hero in American Fiction, 1966), while Joyce Carol Oates, Robert Penn Warren, and Linda Wagner are among the contributors to the Dickey volume. Arranged chronologically, the Salinger essays provide a sweeping view of Salinger's critical reception; the Dickey essays would have benefited from such an arrangement. Both collections explore a variety of issues, many so specific that a familiarity with the author's work is necessary. For this reason, they will not readily serve as introductory works but will be more useful to teachers, graduate students, and advanced literature majors. William Gargan, Brooklyn Coll. Lib., CUNY
