Description Harold Bloom (1930-) is one of the few contemporary literary critics and theorists to write on the full range of English literature. He has written many classic works, including The Anxiety of Influence. Paul de Man (1919-83) was a key figure in the Deconstruction movement and one of the most influential - and controversial - literary critics of the twentieth century. Jacques Derrida (1930-) is Professor of Philosophy at Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris. Regarded as the founding father of deconstruction, his influence on contemporary thought has been enormous. Geoffrey Hartman (1929-) is a major voice in contemporary criticism, whose work is at once philosophical, speculative and experimental. J. Hillis Miller (1928-) is Distinguished Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the University of California, Irvine and the author of many important works of literary and cultural criticism. Deconstruction and Criticism is the groundbreaking work that introduced Deconstruction to the Western world, with five major essays by its principal proponents. This is the book that introduced deconstruction as a tool for literary and cultural theorists throughout the English-speaking world, and set the ball rolling for the subsequent controversies over the use of theory to study liuterature.
