From School Library Journal:

Grade 10 Up-In each of these volumes, five poems are represented in critical essays by literary analysts both past and contemporary. Robert Browning highlights "My Last Duchess," "Fra Lippo Lippi," "Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came," "Andrea del Sarto," and "Caliban Upon Setebos." Sylvia Plath features "The Colossus," "The Arrival of the Bee Box," "Daddy," "Ariel," and "Lady Lazarus." The main texts are prefaced by brief but informative biographies of the poets and conclude with bibliographies of works by and about them as well as indexes of important themes and ideas from the poems. Each volume is divided into sections, one for each poem, and each section begins with Bloom's thematic analysis of the work. This information, given in a straightforward style, will be helpful to students. Because the essays are written by scholars, however, the language is often dense and hard to grasp for all but the most advanced high-school literature students. With their academic approach and language, these research and study guides would be best used in school libraries that support intensive literary research on the precollege or Advanced Placement level.

Review:

"The accounts offer students an opportunity to absorb serious analytical styles."

..."excellent critical guide sets edited by Harold Bloom...recommended picks for audiences of young adults studying literature."

"A publishing venture almost without precedent both in its scope and in the fact that it is guided by a single critical intelligence."

"This collection of previously published essays, edited by the distinguished literary scholar Harold Bloom, is an excellent addition to the Wells critical canon."

"Harold Bloom adds some fantastic critical literary guides, providing interpretations and issues that should reach a wide audience from adults to young adults at the high school and college levels."
