Abstract

The article offers poetry criticism of the poem "Peniel," by Kevin Hart. Harold Bloom says that it shows the complexities of metaphysics, the revival of negative theology, and the internalization of various Western poetic practices. Furthermore, the author says that the title of the poem can be compared to the book of Genesis in the Bible, particularly the story of the Israelite patriarch, Jacob, where characters are named prominently.
