Till I End My Song: A Gathering of Last Poems - Harold Bloom

TILL I END MY SONG (HarperCollins, $24.99) is a compilation of the last works of classic poets such as Marlowe, Swift, Spenser, and others. The eminent literary critic Harold Bloom helps to illuminate these culminating achievements, providing a unique opportunity for readers to delve into the minds of some of the most renowned poets in history. From the eerily personal and self-reflective final lines of Shakespeare’s The Tempest to Coleridge’s morbid “Epitaph,” this is a unique collection of master works. While some poets turn their attention inward, reflecting on lives well-lived or wasted, talents revered or reviled, others address the political and social issues of their time. Bloom’s short introductions are both entertaining and informative.
