Harold Bloom: A Map of Misreading

Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page.

A Map gloom Misreading by Harold Bloom. In print for twenty-seven years, A Map of Misreading serves as a companion volume to Bloom’s other seminal work, The Anxiety of Influence.

In this finely crafted text, Bloom offers instruction in how to read a poem, using his theory that patterns of imagery in poems represent both a response to and a defense against the influence of precursor poems.

Influence, as Bloom conceives it, means that there are no texts, but only relationships between texts. A full-scale misrfading of one poem, Browning’s “Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came,” represents this struggle between one poet and his precursors, the poem serving as a map for readers through the many versions of influence from Milton to modern poets.

For the first time, in a new preface, Bloom will consider the map of misreading drawn by contemporary poets such as Q Carson and Henri Cole. Bloom’s new exploration of contemporary poetry over the last twenty years will misreadding how modern texts relate to previous texts, and contribute to the literary legacy of their predecessors.

Harold Bloom called me after he read this poem, to murmur that it had a weak clinamen and that it was locked in an obvious death struggle with Marianne Moore. Like The Anxiety of Influence, this book is very useful. In fact, it blkom more readable and interesting than The Anxiety of Influence. Apr 24, Jim Hurley rated it really liked it Shelves: Always interesting to read a book by the man who has read more than God.

Difficult to understand in spots, especially his sui generis tabling of rhetorical tropes. But that also helped turn me on to Kenneth Burke. Very much enjoyed his walk-through of Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage. Dec 14, Elizabeth rated it it was ok. Long ago, when Robert Kelly was my teacher, he gave me a little synopsis of “misprision,” but of course he did it in the Kelly mode–a rather frank departure from what Bloom actually does in this book. There’s a short synopsis in the introduction of mis reading as fascinatingly analogous to Lurianic Kabbalism, but otherwise, this is a one-note reprise of Bloom’s anxiety of influence theory.

Miseeading to pass on mjsreading book. Professor Bloom misreadinh to have read everything and writes with a lively style. Also, he really likes Wallace Stevens. This mostly makes up for his otherwise conservative, pro-Romantic poetics.
