Harold Bloom at CUNY in March

Via Dr. Ganter —

Harold Bloom is scheduled to give two Monday night talks at 6:30pm at the CUNY Graduate Center (34th st and 5th Ave).

They are billed as self-reflexive events where he will discuss his development as a critic in relation to two literary figures: Whitman and Shakespeare. Bloom is known for his Oedipal theory of influence, where he interprets the work of younger poets writing in relation to their literary “parents.” Presumably, Bloom will discuss the anxieties produced by his own influences.

The first talk is on Whitman on Mar 19.
The second is on Shakespeare on Mar 26.

Reservations are required: 212-817-8215.
