9780300181449: The Anatomy of Influence: Literature as a Way of Life

"Literary criticism, as I attempt to practice it," writes Harold Bloom in The Anatomy of Influence, "is in the first place literary, that is to say, personal and passionate."

For more than half a century, Bloom has shared his profound knowledge of the written word with students and readers. In this, his most comprehensive and accessible study of influence, Bloom leads us through the labyrinthine paths which link the writers and critics who have informed and inspired him for so many years. The result is "a critical self-portrait," a sustained meditation on a life lived with and through the great works of the Western canon: Why has influence been my lifelong obsessive concern? Why have certain writers found me and not others? What is the end of a literary life?

Featuring extended analyses of Bloom's most cherished poets—Shakespeare, Whitman, and Crane—as well as inspired appreciations of Emerson, Tennyson, Browning, Yeats, Ashbery, and others, The Anatomy of Influence adapts Bloom's classic work The Anxiety of Influence to show us what great literature is, how it comes to be, and why it matters. Each chapter maps startling new literary connections that suddenly seem inevitable once Bloom has shown us how to listen and to read. A fierce and intimate appreciation of the art of literature on a scale that the author will not again attempt, The Anatomy of Influence follows the sublime works it studies, inspiring the reader with a sense of something ever more about to be.

About the Author:

Harold Bloom is Sterling Professor of the Humanities at Yale University. He lives in New Haven, CT.

Review:

"Bloom thinks in the sweep of millennia, of intellectual patterns that unfold over centuries, of a vast and intricate labyrinth of interconnections between artists from Plato to Pater."--Michael Lindgren, Washington Post--Michael Lindgren "The Washington Post "

"Reading Bloom read the great writers of the canon is an immense pleasure; reading Bloom read Bloom is a revelation. Like his ideal poets, Bloom brings us fire and light, apt tools for reading in the dark."--James Angelos, "Ugarte"--James Angelos "Ugarte "

"He is, by any reckoning, one of the most stimulating literary presences of the last half-century"--Sam Tanenhaus, "International Herald Tribune"--Sam Tanenhaus"International Herald Tribune" (05/21/2011)

Bloom "has been one of America''s most fascinating literary critics for nearly half a century. In his newest book, "The Anatomy of Influence: Literature as a Way of Life, "Bloom revisits the ideas that made him a star--and explains, in a straightforward way, why he''s spent his career trying 'to build a hedge around the secular Western canon.' "--Josh Rothman, Brainiac Blog, "Boston"" Globe"--Josh Rothman "Brainiac Blog, Boston Globe "

""The Anatomy of Influence" crackles with a rhetorical energy more suited to the public lecture theatre than the graduate seminar." --Jonathan Derbyshire, "New Statesman"--Jonathan Derbyshire"New Statesman" (05/23/2011)

"Criticism, [Bloom] believes, should be 'personal and passionate' and, in fact, personal passion has always been his greatest strength... Like all Bloom's finest work [The Anatomy of Influence] is a genial amalgam in which insight is inseparable from extravagance."--Eric Ormsby, "Literary Review"--Eric Ormsby"Literary Review" (05/01/2011)

.".... [A] treasure-trove of a book......This volume is a testimony to Bloom's assertion that he is still 'hopelessly passionate about the poets I loved best'. "--John Montague, "Irish Times"--John Montague"Irish Times" (08/06/2011)

"Bloom reveals his own magisterial, sometimes mischievous self, in his meditations on the masters with whom he connects."--Iain Finlayson, "The Times"--Iain Finlayson"The Times" (05/14/2011)

"Bloom . . . has many arresting things to say and says them, often, with exquisite precision. He is, by any reckoning, one of the most stimulating literary presences of the last half-century--and one of the most protean, a singular breed of scholar-teacher-critic-prose poet-pamphleteer."--Sam Tanenhaus, "New York Times Book Review"--Sam Tanenhaus "The New York Times Book Review "

."....wise, funny, maddening...... [Bloom is the] most irrepressible and irreplaceable of critics."--Robert Douglas-Fairhurst, "The Daily Telegraph"--Robert Douglas-Fairhurst"The Daily Telegraph" (07/02/2011)

.".....the confessional and elegiac tonalities contained within Bloom's narrative stay long within the memory."--Dr Graham Allen, "Sunday Business Post (Ireland)"--Dr Graham Allen"Sunday Business Post (Ireland)" (07/17/2011)

"If Bloom is right--and I believe he is--that 'literary criticism . . . ought to consist in acts of appreciation, ' he has fulfilled that mandate once again in "The Anatomy of Influence"."--Robert Pogue Harrison, "New York Review of Books"--Robert Pogue Harrison "New York Review of Books "

"This finale to his illustrious career in literary criticism will not disappoint fans of Bloom . . . Essential."--L./i>--L. McMillan "Choice "

"The breadth of thinking and the range of reference in The Anatomy of Influence are astonishing."--John Banville, "The Guardian"--John Banville"The Guardian" (12/03/2011)

."..as provocative, as gloriously preposterous and as captivating as ever."--John Banville, The Guardian (Christmas Books 2011)--John Banville"The Guardian (Christmas Books 2011)" (11/26/2011)

Bloom "has been one of America's most fascinating literary critics for nearly half a century. In his newest book, "The Anatomy of Influence: Literature as a Way of Life, "Bloom revisits the ideas that made him a star--and explains, in a straightforward way, why he's spent his career trying 'to build a hedge around the secular Western canon.' "--Josh Rothman, Brainiac Blog, "Boston"" Globe"--Josh Rothman "Brainiac Blog, Boston Globe "

"As defender of the Western canon, the controversial Bloom has no equal. . . . Bloom's elegant and accessible writing will be welcomed by serious readers."--Nancy R./i>--Nancy R. Ives "Library Journal "

"If the pronouncements of Bloom are sometimes cryptic, and wayward, his insights can be brilliant, as when he suggests that Shakespeare might be exploring his relationship to his mighty precursor Marlowe in the relationship between the half-brothers Edmund and Edgar in King Lear; or when he remarks that Milton could not have presented an unfallen Satan in Paradise Lost because he would have been too much like Hamlet; or when he explores the wide and varied influence of Walt Whitman, whom he considers the greatest of American poets."--Bernard Manzo, "The Tablet"--Bernard Manzo"The Tablet" (01/14/2012)

Selected as a Choice Outstanding Academic Title for 2011 in the Language and Literature category.--Choice Magazine "Choice Outstanding Academic Title: Language and Literature "
