Harold Bloom is dead

Who loves ya, baby?
Harold Bloom, the prodigious literary critic who championed and defended the Western canon in an outpouring of influential books that appeared not only on college syllabuses but also — unusual for an academic — on best-seller lists, died on Monday at a hospital in New Haven. He was 89.

It doesn't surprise me that a bunch of people are claiming he was 'handsy' with his students. I swear every famous writer/academic is some sort of perv.

"if you truly want to honor Harold Bloom you should have 20 unpaid grad students write his obit"

Saw a tweet along the lines of "Who cares what this predator had to say about shakespeare?"

So if they found out that Shakespeare had been "handsy" would that automatically invalidate 'Hamlet'? Who cares what this predator has to say about the human condition?

He was right about Harry Potter. I've listened to the audiobooks about 60 times and they're horribly written.

Reddit actually, but it's definitely "Twitterspeak". Everyone writes like they're working for Buzzfeed these days.

Surprised he hasn't chipped in on this thread yet. He hero worships Bloom and also he loves the ladies.
