This text is a defence of the western literary canon which the author sees being eroded by the tyranny of cultural studies and political correctness in the academic and literary world. It is at once an eloquent survey of the great authors from Dante to Beckett that make up the canon, with Shakespeare at its centre, as well as a polemical assault on the forces that are trying to diminish it.

Book Description Riverhead Books, 1995. Literary critic Harold Bloom's "The Western Canon" is more than a required reading list-it is a vision.
