Publisher Description

Harold Bloom surveys with majestic view the literature of the West from the Old Testament to Samuel Beckett. He provocatively rereads the Yahwist (or "J") writer, Jeremiah, Job, Jonah, the Illiad, the Aeneid, Dante's Divine Comedy, Hamlet, King Lear, Othello, the Henry IV plays, Paradise Lost, Blake's Milton, Wordsworth's Prelude, and works by Freud, Kafka, and Beckett. In so doing, he uncovers the truth that all our attempts to call any strong work more sacred than another are merely political and social formulations. This is criticism at its best. This book is published by Harvard University Press.

Sacred Ruination! The Truth Behind the Texts

This is perhaps best book. It will illuminate brilliantly the texts of the Bible, Shakespeare, Milton and etc.
If you're not a Christian moralist, you will not be disappointed. It takes a very focused concentration though; be warned.
