    Less a contribution to Bloom's esoteric theoretical system (The Anxiety of Influence, A Map of Misreading, etc.) than an essay in nervous self-classification&#;fascinating as such, but excruciating, too, in its twists and turns, its fecklessness. Unsurprisingly, Bloom once again stresses "misprision," "troping," the three elements of "strong readings of belated poems": "negation, evasion. In my first book, Entering the Agon (OUP, ), I explore the ways in which debate is represented in Homer, historiography and tragedy through a framework of dissent and authority.
