Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 415 pages. Published in 1977. Book-length account on subject. One of Harold Bloom's greatest achievements. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only by a University Press. Like all other University Press titles, the book was issued with and without a DJ, the latter specifically meant for libraries and public collections (as well as copies for Harold Bloom's personal use). The First Edition is now rare. Presents Harold Bloom's "Wallace Stevens: The Poems of Our Climate". "This dazzling book is at once an indispensable guide to Stevens' poetic canon and a significant addition to the literature on the American Romantic Movement. Gives authoritative readings of the major long poems and sequences of Stevens and deals at length with the important shorter works, showing their complex relations both to one another and to the work of Stevens' precursors: Wordsworth, Shelley, Keats, Emerson, and Whitman. No other book on Stevens is as ambitious or comprehensive as this one. The product of twenty years of meditating, thinking, and writing about Stevens, this truly remarkable book is a brilliant extension of Bloom's theories of literary interpretation" (Publisher's blurb). That is to say, among American poets, Wallace Stevens is probably Case Study #1 of the "anxiety of influence", Bloom's ownable phrase-contribution to the English language, and his still-controversial and ultimately inescapable insight. In "The Daemon Knows" (2015), which may be his valedictory, Bloom re-visits and re-considers Wallace Stevens, finally judging him to be one of the greatest American writers of all time: For being unique, uniquely American, and uniquely sublime. An absolute "must-have" title for Harold Bloom and Wallace Stevens collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed and inscribed in black pen on the front free endpaper by the author: "For Vincent Scully, with my love and confidence in his genius, Harold Bloom". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Vincent Scully was the Professor Emeritus of Architecture at Yale University. As such, according to Philip Johnson (who should know), he was "the single most influential architecture teacher of modern times". As his dedication shows, Scully was also Harold Bloom's esteemed Yale colleague and close friend. This title is a great book. A genuine association copy, this is also the only such signed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Please note: Most copies available online are subsequent printings or have major flaws. A rare signed copy thus. The greatest literary critic of our time on one of the greatest poets of all time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER HAROLD BLOOM TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0801408407. Bookseller Inventory #
