Hence Nietzche, lovingly recognizing in Socrates the first master of sublimation, found in Socrates also the destroyer of tragedy. This book can be read as an introduction to poetry or as a philosophical essay.

They have vanished in the general fog of what might be called error. May 26, Liam Guilar rated it liked it. The point is, I’m not feeling illuminated at all.

And, oh, have I ever mentioned that tender colleague labeled himself a “poet”?

While admitting the influence of extraliterary experience on every poet, he argues that “the poet in a poet” is inspired to write by reading another poet’s poetry and will tend to produce work that is in danger of being derivative of existing poetry, and, therefore, weak.

Through an insightful study of Romantic poets, Bloom puts forth his central vision of the relations between precursors and the individual artist. It was the first in a series of books that advanced a new “revisionary” or antithetical [1] approach to literary criticism. People tend to only see him for his negative comments — which is a dire shame because he speaks much more about the things he likes — so that he has become the caricature of The Old White Man.


Ok I tried to tackle this last night. Jan 05, James rated it it was amazing. This is a challenging book to get through, but it rewards the effort. This may be because I misunderstood the central idea. This article relies too much on references to primary sources.

For Bloom, the unconscious is constantly under siege by The Influenciqs of Influence. That aside, the prologue to the new edition, basically a love letter to Shakespeare, is sheer pleasure to read.

I got introduced to Prof. Only read the first chapter, “Clinamen or poetic misprision”, for a course I’m taking. Innocence means, at it’s heart, free of consequence, jarold Anxiety basically means the opposite.
