As unconventional and refreshing as its author, Harold Bloom's annotated anthology Till I End My Song collects "last poems" of notable poets. Not all of these are literally the poets' final works, but all of them mark some kind of end. They share one other attribute: "Everything in this volume is here because of its artistic excellence." The authors, arranged chronologically, begin with Sir Walter Raleigh and Sir Phillip Sidney and extend into our time with Kenneth Koch, A.R. Ammons, and James Merrill. There is nothing doting or morbid at this collection: At seventy-nine, Bloom continues to display the talents that have earned him respect as the greatest literary critic of our time.
