Thought for the Day: Harold Bloom

Poster boy for the joys of reading literature.

Or maybe: Don't let poetry do this to you.

I see in the NYRB that he doesn't like R. Crumb!

But what I want to know is does his expression change when talking about something he dislikes?

He doesn't like Crumb's women -- Crumb's sense of Yahweh as a character he's ok with. And when he was a kid, Thomas Mann... that's funny, why's there blood on my head? Oh! I must have fallen asleep standing up.

Oddly, he looks like one of Crumb's women a bit, no?

Maybe that explains the expression.
