9780061923067: Till I End My Song: A Gathering of Last Poems

“A colossus among critics. . . . His enthusiasm for literature is a joyous intoxicant.” —New York Times

In this charming anthology, esteemed literary critic Harold Bloom collects the last poems of history's most important and celebrated poets. As with his immensely popular Best Poems of the English Language, Bloom has carefully curated and annotated the final works of one hundred poets in Till I End My Song, with selections from John Keats, T.S. Eliot, Elizabeth Bishop, Emily Dickinson, Dylan Thomas, Robert Frost, D.H. Lawrence, W.H. Auden, John Milton, Herman Melville, Emily Brontë, and others. Written with the same wise and discerning commentary of earlier books—including his acclaimed Shakespeare: The Invention of the Human and The Book of JTill I End My Song is a moving and provocative meditation on the relationship between art, meaning, and ultimately, death, from the literary titan of our time.

From the Back Cover:

In Till I End My Song, Harold Bloom, the foremost literary critic of our time, has culled a delightful anthology of the final works from one hundred of the greatest, most influential poets throughout history. These poems, sometimes the literal end and at other times the imagined conclusion to a poetic career, offer a lens through which to contemplate the enduring nature of art and the inevitability of death. Poems by T. S. Eliot, Alexander Pope, W. B. Yeats, Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, and William Shakespeare are featured here, as are works from distinguished but long-neglected poets such as Conrad Aiken, William Cowper, Edwin Arlington Robinson, George Meredith, and Louis MacNeice. An authoritative collection, Till I End My Song will reverberate long into the coming silence.
