Product Details

Praise

“Describe is what he does, perhaps more brilliantly than anyone else alive.”
Esquire 

“The great critic revisits the literature that has meant most to him. “
–The New York Times

“Our era’s Samuel Johnson…Possessed by Memory really is a kind of valediction… Bloom has loved literature deeply—and that love is, even in the face of death, a life-giving force.”
—Commonweal Magazine 

“These essays reveal a deeply personal attachment and fresh perspective. An eloquent and erudite rereading of the author’s beloved works.”
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“A rich lifetime of readership and scholarship can be found within the covers of this equally rich book.”
—Publishers Weekly
