Shakespeare free pdf "The indispensable critic on the indispensable writer." -Geoffrey O'Brien, "New York Review of Books"A landmark achievement as expansive, erudite, and passionate as its renowned author, "Shakespeare: The Invention of the Human "is the culmination of a lifetime of reading, writing about, and teaching Shakespeare. Preeminent literary critic-and ultimate authority on the western literary tradition-Harold Bloom leads us through a comprehensive reading of every one of the dramatist's plays, brilliantly illuminating each work with unrivaled warmth, wit and insight. At the same time, Bloom presents one of the boldest theses of Shakespearean scholarships: that Shakespeare not only invented the English language, but also created human nature as we know it today.

About Prof. Harold Bloom

Harold Bloom is a Sterling Professor of Humanities at Yale University and a former Charles Eliot Norton Professor at Harvard. As "The Paris Review" has pointed out, "no critic in the English language since Samuel Johnson has been more prolific." His more than thirty books include "The Best Poems of the English Language," "The Art of Reading Poetry," and "The Book of J." He is a MacArthur Prize Fellow, a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and the recipient of many awards and honorary degrees, including the Academy's Gold Medal for Belles Lettres and Criticism, the International Prize of Catalonia, and the Alfonso Reyes Prize of Mexico. Alfred Kazin has said, "Bloom is all literature, (he) positively lives it," and "The New York Times" called him "the most original literary critic in America." He lives in New Haven and New York.
