Bloom's Literary Criticism, 2007 - 250 páginas

Sylvia Plath’s short life and intense poetry continue to draw considerable critical and popular attention. Among her more recognizable works are the poetry collection Ariel and the novel The Bell Jar. Her suicide and tumultuous marriage to Ted Hughes, as well as his choices in posthumously publishing some of her work (and not publishing other parts of it) add to the mystery of Plath’s life, and are documented in this updated Bloom's Modern Critical Views title. This book offers readers fresh perspectives on a writer whose highly personal oeuvre continues to fascinate more than 40 years after her tragic death.

Acerca del autor (2007)

Harold Bloom was born on July 11, 1930 in New York City. He earned his Bachelor of Arts from Cornell in 1951 and his Doctorate from Yale in 1955. After graduating from Yale, Bloom remained there as a teacher, and was made Sterling Professor of Humanities in 1983. Bloom's theories have changed the way that critics think of literary tradition and has also focused his attentions on history and the Bible. He has written over twenty books and edited countless others. He is one of the most famous critics in the world and considered an expert in many fields. In 2010 he became a founding patron of Ralston College, a new institution in Savannah, Georgia, that focuses on primary texts. His works include Fallen Angels, Till I End My Song: A Gathering of Last Poems, Anatomy of Influence: Literature as a Way of Life and The Shadow of a Great Rock: A Literary Appreciation of The King James Bible.
