He has also received the International Prize of Catalonia, the Alfonso Reyes Prize of Mexico, and the Hans Christian Andersen Bicentennial Prize of Denmark.

Reviews

"The accounts offer students an opportunity to absorb serious analytical styles." "A publishing venture almost without precedent both in its scope and in the fact that it is guided by a single critical intelligence." "Harold Bloom adds some fantastic critical literary guides, providing interpretations and issues that should reach a wide audience from adults to young adults at the high school and college levels."
