A scholarly, yet not pretentious look at Shakespeare's works as a reflection of human nature. A very good reference work. Read Bloom's take on any play before reading/seeing it, and you will surely get much more out of it. Leer comentario completo

Acerca del autor (1999)

Described in the New York Times as ' a colossus among critics ... [with] an encyclopedic intellect, exuberant eccentricity, a massive love of literature. The legend of his genius spans four decades', Harold Bloom was born to a Yiddish-speaking family and learnt to speak English by reading the works of William Blake. He studied at Cornell, Pembroke College Cambridge and Yale, and is Professor of Humanities at Yale and Professor of English at New York Universities, a regular contributor to literary journals and the recipient of many prizes and awards.
