Though Harold Bloom wished to distance himself from culture war polemics, he has unapologetically practiced what Allan Bloom preached, teaching the Canonical "great books" of literature and religion and opposing all manner of critics on the left, whom he lumps together in the phrase the School of Resentment. Bloom’s 1973 The Anxiety of Influence has itself exerted a major influence on literary studies, and best-selling popular works, like 1998’s Shakespeare: The Invention of the Human, have kept Harold Bloom’s name in circulation even when scholarly citations of his work declined.

Rainpick
Perhaps it was for the money that Bloom agreed to waste his time editing this book of essays on Steinbeck. It's clear from his introduction that he finds Steinbeck underwhelming. In his opinion, Steinbeck doesn't stand up to Hemingway, that Steinbeck's problem was Hemingway, "whose shadow always hovered too near."

That's odd to read because, according to other sources, Hemingway harbored concern about Steinbeck's shadow eclipsing his work - as when The Grapes of Wrath was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1940 and For Whom the Bell Tolls was not in 1941.

Writing in this same vein, essayist Anthony Burgess (we all remember him, right?) declares that Steinbeck was "worthy" but not "important" like Hemingway. Burgess concedes that Steinbeck's works were adopted to film (not to mention stage) with greater success than Hemingway's works. However, that was because Steinbeck was "luckier" than Hemingway.

Bloom and Burgess suggest that the Noble Prize winner (Steinbeck) unwisely chose to write about transitory political issues. If he had been an apolitical writer, like Hemingway, and stripped language to the bone, etc., he could have been an important writer.

This book contains some interesting essays that offer insight into Steinbeck's writing; these writers - unlike Bloom and Burgess -- are not out to reduce his stature to that of a second-rate writer.
September
While studying John Steinbeck I came across this book and was glad to find a book that treats "In Doubious Battle", "Of Mice and Men", and "The Grapes of Wrath" together in one volume. I was, however, totally disappointed. The book consists of several abstracts of essays that are available elsewhere in full. The selection of essays does not seem to make any sense and the essays are not commented. The aim of author seems to be to make money out of other people's essays. If you want to learn something about John Steinbeck, do not buy this book! Look for essays elsewhere and look for other books. There are better ones!
