American literary works of the 20th century
 278 American literary works of the 20th century   Bei Amazon nachschauen
The following list appeared in the September 1994 issue of Esquire magazine (Volume 122, No. 3, pp. 118-121), with the following acknowledgement:
Excerpted from The Western Canon by Harald Bloom. Copyright 1994 by Harold Bloom.
Published by arrangement with Harcourt, Brace & Company.
It represents, in Bloom's words, "a modest prophecy as to survival possibilities," a prediction as to what will prove to be the lasting American literary works of the 20th century (278 books). It was posted it to rec.arts.books a while back, where it was—needless to say—the object of some discussion.
Harold Bloom.
