One of our most popular, respected, and controversial literary critics, Yale University professor Harold Bloom¿s books ¿ about, variously, Shakespeare, the Bible, and the classic literature ¿ are as erudite as they are accessible.
Harlem Renaissance (Bloom's Literary Criticism)by Harold Bloom (Editor)
In the 1920's, African-American writers, painters, and musicians were beginning to form an artistic community that stretched beyond the streets of Harlem. Their work set the foundation for the emergence of the African-American voice and its influence on current American culture. This collection of essays focuses specifically on the origins of the Harlem Renaissance, its key writing figures and artists, and some of the difficulties they faced.
