In 1973, Yale professor Harold Bloom struck the staid world of literary criticism with The Anatomy of Influence, his radical rethinking of how writers approach writing. In The Anatomy of Influence, the now octogenarian author grapples with his own preoccupation with the literary canon: "Why has influence been my lifelong obsessive concern? Why have certain writers found me and not others? What is the end of a literary life?" As the last major statement by arguably the greatest critic of our age, this revealing work will justly receive prominent media attention.
