Bloom's Literary Themes Set
Certain great literary themes reappear continually throughout the world's literature and are a major component of literature curriculum standards today. The engaging new ""Bloom's Literary Themes"" series examines these themes as they function in classic literary works, from the Bible to the novels of Toni Morrison and Philip Roth. Each book contains approximately 20 essays, with each essay discussing the role of the title's subject theme in a great work of literature. Some essays have been written specifically for the series; others are excerpts of important critical analyses published in books or journals. Students of literature will gain valuable insight into these recurring themes. This latest addition to the ""Bloom's Literary Criticism"" imprint is the perfect complement to other Bloom's critically acclaimed series, such as ""Bloom's Guides"", ""Bloom's Modern Critical Views"", and ""Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations"". Features of this title include: original essays and excerpts from published critical analyses that discuss the role of the title theme in various works; an index for easy reference; and, introductory essays on the role of themes in literature and the volume's subject theme by Harold Bloom.
