Return to Book Page. The Anxiety of Influence: A Theory of Poetry by Harold Bloom. Harold Bloom’s The Anxiety of Influence has cast its long shadow of influence since it was first published in Through an insightful study of Romantic poets, Bloom puts forth his central vision of the relations between precursors and the individual artist.
His argument that all literary texts are a strong misreading of those that precede them had an enormous impact on Harold Bloom’s The Anxiety of Influence has cast its long shadow of influence since it was first published in His argument that all literary texts are a strong misreading of those that precede them had an enormous impact on the practice of criticism and post-structuralist literary theory.
The book remains a central work of criticism for all students of literature. Written in a moving personal style, anchored by concrete examples, and memorable quotations, this second edition of Bloom’s classic work maintains that the anxiety of influence cannot be evaded – neither by poets nor by responsible readers and critics.
A new introduction, centering upon Shakespeare and Marlowe explains the genesis of Bloom’s thinking, and the subsequent influence of the book on literary criticism of the past quarter of a century. Paperback2nd Editioninflueencias.

Lists with This Book. Apr 15, Cymru Roberts rated it it was amazing Shelves: Harold Bloom is an easy guy to dislike, and even easier to make fun of. Watching his interviews has become somewhat of a hobby of mine, and in them he often seems sullen and dismissive.
He also has a tendency to say that your favorite author or favorite book is utter garbage, and that really seems to piss people off, as if no one should ever have their taste challenged or have to formulate Harold Bloom is an easy guy to dislike, and even easier to make fun of.
He also influnecias a tendency to say that your abgustia author or favorite book is utter garbage, and that really seems to piss people off, as if no one should ever have their taste challenged or have to formulate even to themselves why it is they like something.
He has no discernable talent. Postmodern scholars everywhere found a new champion of their Hate when that interview was published. Nevermind that what he says about these authors is pretty much true, especially if you look at the work without emotion hard to do and kind of antithetical to the reading process I know. The thing about Bloom is however, he has read so much he claims to have once been able to read 1, pages an hour and remember everything, and I believe him that his tolerance for clunky dialogue and cute epiphanies is less than zero.
People tend to only see him for his negative comments — which is a dire shame because he speaks much more about the things he likes — so that he has become the caricature of The Old White Man. So what does he say exactly? Thus, in order to subsume his influences, he must go through a process of deliberately misreading his precursor, dehumanizing himself, breaking down everything that made him a poet to begin with, re-finding his poetic spirit or daemonuntil eventually, maybe, he is strong enough to do battle with his long-dead great poet precursor, his primary influencer, his Great Original.
That is heavy, to me. This is a very quick synopsis, but it encapsulates a lot of what excites me about reading: Of course it is an Anxietyand there were parts of the book where I almost forgot why anyone should read in the first place. Reading for entertainment and escape is not a bad thing at all in my opinion. The idea that the ego is only one, and possibly a minor, player in this whole writing thing — which at its best is really divination … well, that is admittedly controversial, but powerful nonetheless.
He is an American Shaman and his Spirit World is that of literature.

He does cite examples along the way, but I could have used more. Influencais takes this to the nth degree here and has taken heat for it since its first publication. Culture needs controversy however. We need someone to challenge our beliefs at the highest level. View all 4 comments. Oct 18, Sherwood Smith added it Bliom Every time I reread this, I become more dissatisfied with Bloom’s central thesis about the poet’s necessary “misprision” in order to clear the way for creative expression.
Age and experience has convinced me that every reader’s engagement with a text is “correct” for that reader, the question is the ability to convey our ideas of knfluencias text.
I lxs believ Every time I reread this, I become more dissatisfied with Inflkencias central thesis about the poet’s necessary “misprision” in order to clear the way for creative expression.
I also believe that all literature is a constant conversation, so in that sense there shouldn’t be an anxiety of influence at all. That aside, the prologue to the new edition, basically a love letter to Shakespeare, is sheer pleasure to read. View all 6 comments. Feb 26, Hsrold rated it really liked it Shelves: Bloom is here an American Nietzschean ventriloquist speaking through the dummy of William Blake’s corpse, a rhetorician almost as eloquent anguatia just as haroldd as Milton’s Satan.
Jan 05, James rated it it was amazing. But when fallacy is universal, it doesn’t seem to make much sense any more to talk about specific fallacies – affective, pathetic, intentional, or whatever. They have v ”All modern schools believe that metaphor, or figurative language of any kind, is founded upon a pattern of error, whether you ascribe an element of will or intentionality to it, as I do in my belief that writers creatively misunderstand one another, or whether you ascribe it, as deconstructionists do, to the nature of language.
They have vanished in the general fog of what might be called error. As soon as you emphasize rhetoric hagold the point where rhetoric is a kind of quicksand, then the fallacies vanish. Jul 11, aarthi marked it as to-read Shelves: He woke up gasping for breath, and the next day he began writing a book that would become The Anxiety of Influence, in which he argues that all great writers are obsessed with breaking away from the great writers of the past.
The book made him famous, even though few people could understand it. A year after it was “When he was 35, Harold Bloom fell into a deep depression, and in the midst of that depression he had a terrible nightmare that a giant winged creature was pressing down on his chest. A year after it harolx published, Bloom reread it himself, and found that he couldn’t understand it either. Will keep you posted. Nov 07, Mattia Ravasi rated it it was amazing.
Amazingly dicky on several different levels, there is much to admire in the scope and amibitions underlying this theory of poetry.
It might look old-school to the point of outdatedness, but it can still make any dedicated reader feel like they know way less then they should about the subject of their passion, which all things considered is always a great thing. Jan 28, Tiago Filipe Clariano rated it it was amazing. Jan 07, Katarzyna rated it liked it Shelves: So this book came highly recommended, I’m interested in criticism, and generally I expected something challenging to read but at the same time illuminating.
The point is, I’m not feeling illuminated at all. This may be because I misunderstood the central idea. This may be also because I find it to be utter bullshit. It laz, to be fair, very interesting, and it may well shed some light on the creative process; but while I find it obvious that yes, poets do angsutia one another, I can’t really agr So this book came highly recommended, I’m interested in criticism, and generally I expected something challenging to read but at the same time illuminating.
It is, to be fair, very interesting, and it may well shed some light on the creative process; but while I find it obvious that yes, poets do influence one another, I can’t really agree with the idea of misreadings, since I think that texts can provoke different responses Roman Ingarden’s places of indeterminacy come here to mindand I found the thing rather difficult to read in general.
This is not, in itself, a bad thing. I didn’t expect it to be easy. But I expected influenicas to make sense.
The Anxiety of Influence: A Theory of Poetry by Harold Bloom
The preface, though, and Bloom’s thoughts on Shakespeare are brilliant and I wish it didn’t stand out from the rest of the book so much – I’d have liked to benefit more from the whole thing. Three stars from me, almost solely for the preface. Dec 28, Brent Myers rated it it was amazing. It works to woo the ladies. Jan 25, Akylina rated it liked it Shelves: Only read the first chapter, “Clinamen or poetic misprision”, for a course I’m taking. May 21, Sandra rated it did not like it.
I hate this book. Harold Bloom is an idiot. I got introduced to Prof. It is natural and, sometimes, beneficial. Harold Bloom is my favorite literary critic so far. I recommend reading his books.

This is his approach to criticism as well. This book can be read as an introduction to poetry or as a philosophical essay.
