This introduction to the American literary critic Harold Bloom explores the paradoxical shifts between theory and poetry which mark Bloom's writings. Clearly outlines the main features of Bloom's unique approach to poetry; emphasizes Bloom's "poetics of conflict" and his theory of the "anxiety of influence." Each chapter includes a reading in which a relevant example of Bloom's practice of interpretation is discussed in relation to his theory. For those interested in literary theory and criticism, cultural theory, Romantic and Modern poetry.
