    •  I haven't read 'Book of J', but I've seen Bloom (3+ / 0-)

      make that argument in shorter form in other books, like The Western Canon.

      I disagree with lots of things Bloom says, but he's always enjoyable to read, and thought-provoking. I have much respect for how voraciously he reads, his zeal for contention, and his ability to think for himself.
