Summary "Harold Bloom, named "The indispensible critic" by the New York Review of Books, returns with a definitive yet personal book on twelve American writers upon whose work he believes the American canon is built. While his references to American writers are wide-ranging, he focuses on twelve: Walt Whitman, Herman Melville, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Emily Dickinson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Henry James, Mark Twain, Robert Frost, Wallace Stevens, T. S. Eliot, William Faulkner, and Hart Crane, those writers whose works make up what he calls the American sublime. A book by our greatest literary critic writing on these great American writers will be a must-read for anyone interested in American literature"-- Provided by publisher.
Subject American literature -- History and criticism.
