Agon: Towards a Theory of Revisionism (Galaxy Books)

Harold Bloom
In the culmination of a series that began with The Anxiety of Influence and A Map or Misreading, Harold Bloom expands upon his controversial theory of revisionism, which he views as a contest of opposing artistic and moral drives. From this theoretical perspective, Bloom reexamines Freud, religious sources of literature, literary modes such as fantasy, and the sequence of American writers that includes Ralph Waldo Emerson, Walt Whitman, Wallace Stevens, Hart Crane, and John Ashbery.
