The Art of Reading Poetry is a highly reputable and notable stand-alone introduction to Harold Bloom's The Best Poems of the English Language anthology. "Indispensable critic" (New York Times Book Review) and "master entertainer" (Newsweek) Harold Bloom gives us his critical reflections on more than a half century devoted to reading, teaching, and writing about the literary achievement he loves best, and conveys his passionate concern for how a poem should be interpreted and appreciated. By illuminating such subjects as poetic voice, metaphor and allusion, and the nature of poetic value itself, Bloom presents an invaluable learning tool as a key to artistic expression.
