Kabbalah and Criticism may justly be regarded as the cardinal work in Harold Blooms enterprise. It is the keystone in the arch, clarifying the development of his earlier books, pointing to the direction of his later ones. Kabbalah and Criticism provides a study of the Kabbalah itself, of its great commentators- the “”revisionary ratios”” they employed – and of its significance as a model for contemporary criticism.
Harold Bloom (b.1930) is Sterling Professor of Humanities at Yale University and a former Charles Eliot Norton Professor at Harvard. He is the author of more than twenty books.
