Considered the world's cheif authority on Shakespeare, Harold Bloom is now in his 46th year of teaching at Yale University. His latest book How to Read and Why joins a prodigious literary output which includes the editorship of this flagship study guide series.From School Library Journal:
Grade 11 Up-Bloom has assembled what he refers to as "...a representative selection of the most useful critical essays on the late Ralph Waldo Ellison's masterwork...." The 12 articles include such diverse views as the feminist analysis in Claudia Tate's search for the "Invisible Women," Philippe Whyte's meditations on what he believes are "Trickster" elements of the story, and Alan Nadel's tracings of the relationship of this novel to Twain's Huckleberry Finn, as well as the critical interpretations of Kenneth Burke, Joseph Frank, Kun Jong Lee, William Lyne, Berndt Ostendorf, Thomas Schaub, and Robert B. Stepto. These highly intellectual, esoteric essays are well documented, and the book concludes with brief paragraphs about the contributors. Although for a limited audience, this comprehensive volume will be useful where an in-depth critical analysis of Invisible Man is part of the English curriculum.
