Praise

“A deep consideration of significant American writers, from Emerson to Pynchon…An erudite tour of the American literary landscape from one of its most important observers.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Ambitious, authoritative, and certainly arguable, Bloom’s compendium is an achievement of immense use and interest to literature students and general readers alike.” Publishers Weekly
 
“He stands for a rare intellectual purity, being not only a kind of shaggy saint in his devotion to literature but also … a gadfly, a doomsayer and a great teacher.”
—Michael Dirda, The Wall Street Journal


“…an impressive and important look at what he sees as the core of American literature.”
—PopMatters.com
