Harold Bloom is one of the most well known and respected critics of recent history I had high hopes to hear his insights on the importance of reading I absolutely love reading and was interested to learn about its benefits from Bloom s perspective I was let down there are a lot of good descriptions but overall a lot of the analysis was mediocre Maybe he is too high brow for me but I didn t get the insight I was hoping With that said there are some excellent sections especially the one on Blood Meridian These made the book worth reading but there were also a lot of fillersThe book is structured by Bloom s analysis of short stories poetry plays and novels Each section is about a specific work and consists of 3 7 pages It can be picked up and read at a leisurely pace Who knows maybe I ll read it again as it did seem to have some parts that would ve been fruitful if I spent time thinking about So I recommend it but it was a little short of what I was expecting
