About Bloom’s Literature:
Bloom’s Literature offers a comprehensive resource on the study of literature for colleges and universities, K–12 schools, and public libraries. Edited and curated by Yale University professor Harold Bloom, the database includes thousands of critical essays, author biographies and character analyses, the full text of almost 800 books from Infobase’s extensive reference collection, thousands of discussion questions, essays providing guidance on writing papers, and full-length videos of classic stage performances and film adaptations of literary works. Last year, more than 9,000 new discussion questions on a range of literary subjects were added to Bloom’s Literature for students and patrons who need suggestions for research and writing topics.
