Love Harold Bloom Or Hate Him...

. . . you have to give the man credit when it comes to fiction that isn't Harry Potter. Now I've always felt that Mr. Bloom's sneering dismissal of HP was the literary snob equivalent of those evangelicals who wish to burn the boy wizard. If it's popular it must be populist, or something along those lines. But his defense of Little, Big is to his credit. So well done there, I guess.

Me, I love David Lehman for saying "Harold Bloom, who has rarely set pen to paper without pissing someone off..."

I was kind of enjoying mostly hating him. You've spoiled it for me.

Don't worry. One good book does not a true love make.
