Harold Bloom is Sterling Professor of the Humanities at Yale University. He lives in New Haven, CT.
"Magnificent... He is never less than memorable." (Peter Ackroyd, The Times) "wise, funny, maddening... the most irrepressible and irreplaceable of critics." (Robert Douglas-Fairhurst, The Daily Telegraph) "Bloom reveals his own magisterial, sometimes mischievous self, in his meditations on the masters with whom he connects." (Iain Finlayson, The Times) "The Anatomy of Influence crackles with a rhetorical energy more suited to the public lecture theatre than the graduate seminar." (Jonathan Derbyshire, New Statesman) "Bloom is fighting the good fight for literature." (The Observer)"
