Abstract:

"From his assault on New Criticism to his salvos against the 'school of resentment,' literary scholar Harold Bloom has fused an eloquent defense of the western canon with insightful analysis and a rebel's penchant for controversy. This imaginative program, the first-ever documentary on Bloom's far-reaching contributions to literary criticism, ushers viewers through the complex world of his writings, ideas, influences, and impact. Presenting extensive commentary from Bloom himself, the film also features detailed interviews with the renowned Sir Frank Kermode, a long-time colleague and sometime rival of Bloom's, and The New School's Dr. Nicholas Birns, literary critic and former student of both Bloom and Kermode. Academics who have studied Bloom's career--including Dr. Xavier Perez Torio of Pompeu Fabra University and Dr. Raffaele Pinto of the University of Barcelona--are also included."
