      Though immediate praised upon its publication in 1975, E.L. Doctorow's Ragtime encountered a barrage of negative criticism and remains his most controversial work. Its complex form involves historical figures in the fictional tale. In this volume, critics such as Paul Levine comment on the use of "real" and "imagined" characters.

    This series is edited by Harold Bloom, Sterling Professor of the Humanities, Yale University; Henry W. and Albert A. Berg Professor of English, New York University Graduate School. These texts presents critical essays that reflect a variety of schools of criticism on the most important 20th-century criticism on major works from The Odyssey through modern literature. Each volume also contains an introductory essay by Harold Bloom, critical biographies, notes on the contributing critics, a chronology of the author's life, and an index.
