Product description

Review


From reviews of the first edition
"Bloom has helped to make the study of Romantic poetry as intellectually and spiritually challenging a branch of literary studies as one may find."--The New York Times Book Review


"This book will assuredly come to be valued as a major twentieth-century statement on the subject of tradition and individual talent."--David J. Gordon, The Yale Review


Synopsis

This is a study of the Romantic poets and the relation between tradition and the individual artist. For the second edition, Bloom offers a new introduction which explains the genesis of his thinking and the subsequent influence of the book on literary criticism of the past 20 years. It is intended for scholars and students of Romantic poetry, 18th and 19th century English literature, poetry, and literary theory.
