La angustia de las influencias: una teoría de la poesía – Harold Bloom – Google Books
Reading for entertainment and escape is not a bad thing at all in my opinion. A Theory of Poetry by Harold Bloom. Ok this book is billed as the starting point for Literary Criticism in America. This article has multiple issues. Harolld can only rest in the fact that the old poets are dead and the poet is the one who can do what he wants because there are no consequences from a dead man nor any of his contemporaries.

Bloom takes this to the bbloom degree here and has taken heat for it since its first publication. Bloom since has changed his mind, and the most recent editions of The Anxiety of Influence include a preface claiming that Shakespeare was troubled early in his career by the influence of Christopher Marlowe. The general thesis still seems quite valid–but I had garnered that from the anecdotal references.

The thing about Bloom is however, he has read so much he claims ls 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.
This leads to new work but also takes them away from innocence and the source of poetic inspiration. Ok let me say that Dd Bloom has an idea about poetry as being written from a place that is not uh Jun 16, John Hall rated it really liked it. The poet’s gradual emptying of self and personality until the poet is able to hold the predecessor’s work so blankly that it appea Ok I tried to tackle this last night. Also, as a writer, I will probably tend to be more critical of critics, resenting their critiques of what I do more than the attempts, either successful or failed, of fellow writers of fiction and poetry in their efforts at self-expression.

I usually encounter people too enmeshed in cultural warfare to actually write an objective review on Bloom – individuals who tend towards adverse reactions to relativism and “social-justice lit” or whatever will love him, those interested in post colonial, marginalized or transgressive writers will hate him. What do you think? Jan 07, Katarzyna rated it liked it Shelves: The Anxiety of Influence: Anguxtia with This Book.
The poet as conqueror of time. Only read the first chapter, “Clinamen or poetic misprision”, for a course I’m taking. Harold Bloom is an idiot. Culture needs controversy however.
This may be also because I find it to be utter bullshit. Sadly, though, I don’t feel all that much infleuncias enlightened now having read the text. I also believ 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.
Watching his interviews has become somewhat of a hobby of mine, and in them he often seems sullen and dismissive. In his ignorance the poet accepts the Anxiety of Influence rather than innocence and refuses the idea that his innocence can lead him to “the place.
Bloom writes like a douche. Harold Bloom is my influenxias literary critic so far. The book remains a central work of criticism for all students of literature. In The Anxiety of Influence and other early books, Bloom claimed that influence was particularly important for post- enlightenment poets.
Apr 15, Cymru Roberts rated it it ds amazing Shelves: In my opinion it is a thesis steeped in Whitman like solipsism as Whitman himself states in Leaves Of grass: 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 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.
I was really interested in the concept of this book, but it all fell apart for me in practice. Will keep you posted. I agree with the general theory of influence he puts forth, but his idealized conception of the literary canon and ignorance of the political, social and cultural contexts that inform the process of canonization are what bring the work down.
