In the culmination of a series that began with The Anxiety of Influence and A Map or Misreading, Harold Bloom expands upon his controversial theory of revisionism, which he views as a contest of opposing artistic and moral drives. From this theoretical perspective, Bloom reexamines Freud, religious sources of literature, literary modes such as fantasy, and the sequence of American writers that includes Ralph Waldo Emerson, Walt Whitman, Wallace Stevens, Hart Crane, and John Ashbery.

Harold Bloom, Yale University.Review:
"Perfect for confronting students of poetry with the issues of poetic influence, and the more general relationship of the new with the old."--Scott Cairns, University of North Texas
"There is...here a genuine moral passion for the values of literature and real insights into texts and textual relationships."--Choice
"Harold Bloom is one of our most articulate and original critics. In this volume of essays, he amplifies, in more detail than elsewhere, some of the theoretical ideas he has developed....[The volume] provides an excellent introduction to Bloom's range and originality."--Virginia Quarterly Review
"These sundry pieces make one tightly clenched argument, for the author is committed to pursuing the manifestations of a single master idea in whatever he touches."--The New York Times Book Review
"Readers of these essays...will be unsettled by Bloom's deliberately provocative sentences on anxiety, knowledge, evasion, negation, rhetoric....But those who want to accompany Bloom in his explorations of culture and poetry will go willingly down these byroads with him."--Helen Vendler, The New Republic
"The latest installment in Harold Bloom's...theory of poetic creation as a desperate wrestling with forebears....It makes clearer the character and purpose of Bloom's project and in particular what it might mean for him to be a man who 'begins to see everything.'"--The New York Times Book Review
