New Bloom poetry anthology: Last PoemsPosted: October 1, 2010 Filed under: books, poetry Leave a comment
Till I End My Song is Harold Bloom’s latest anthology of poems, in this case “last poems” of one hundred influential poets. The poems are “sometimes the literal end and other times the imagined” conclusion to a poetic career, offering a final view of a poet’s character and the inevitability of death. Bloom is a unique guide to such a collection featuring Eliot, Pope, Yeats, Whitman, Dickinson, and Shakespeare, but also more neglected poets such as Conrad Aiken, William Cowper, Edwin Arlington Robinson, George Meredith and Louis MacNeice.
