Editorial Reviews

Review

"The most original literary critic in America." --The New York Times

"No critic in the English language since Samuel Johnson has been more prolific." --The Paris Review

"Bloom is all literature, (he) positively lives it." --Alfred Kazin

From the Back Cover

A landmark achievement -- expansive, erudite, and passionate -- Shakespeare: The Invention of the Human is the culmination of a lifetime of reading, writing about, and teaching Shakespeare. Preeminent literary critic Harold Bloom leads us through a comprehensive reading of every one of the dramatist's plays, brilliantly illuminating each work with unrivaled warmth, wit, and insight. At the same time, Bloom presents one of the boldest theses of Shakespearean scholarship -- that Shakespeare not only reinvented the English language, but also created human nature as we know it today.
