9780195162219: A Map of Misreading

In print for twenty-seven years, A Map of Misreading serves as a companion volume to Bloom's other seminal work, The Anxiety of Influence. In this finely crafted text, Bloom offers instruction in how to read a poem, using his theory that patterns of imagery in poems represent both a response to and a defense against the influence of precursor poems. Influence, as Bloom conceives it, means that there are no texts, but only relationships between texts. Bloom discusses British and American poets including Milton, Wordsworth, Shelley, Keats, Tennyson, Browning, Whitman, Dickinson, Stevens, Warren, Ammons and Ashbery. A full-scale reading of one poem, Browning's "Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came," represents this struggle between one poet and his precursors, the poem serving as a map for readers through the many versions of influence from Milton to modern poets.

For the first time, in a new preface, Bloom will consider the map of misreading drawn by contemporary poets such as Ann Carson and Henri Cole. Bloom's new exploration of contemporary poetry over the last twenty years will illuminate how modern texts relate to previous texts, and contribute to the literary legacy of their predecessors.

About the Author:


Harold Bloom is Sterling Professor of Humanities at Yale University, Berg Professor of English at New York University, author of more than twenty books including The Anxiety of Influence, The Western Canon, Shakespeare: The Invention of the Human, The Book of J, and the forthcoming Genius.

Review:


"The sincerity of this book...the sheer care for poetry which governs both this work and its predecessor, is unmistakable and most impressive."--The New York Review of Books


"Bloom is the most rare of critics. He has what seems to be a totally detailed command of English poetry and its scholarship.... Because of his entirely gripping theoretical passion his readings are almost unparalleled in skill and thematic nuance."--The New York Times Book Review
