  1. This book has come by some harsh criticism, especially by eminent reviewers like Terry Eagleton and fellow goodreaders In spite of the bad reviews by goodreaders I usually take at their word, I decided to give the book a chance With Bloom s combination of ideas such as Shakespeare being the progenitor of all modern fiction and poetry, of the bard also being the inventor of Human in literature and with Bloom s audacious theory on all literary works being nothing than a sort of plagiarism or a cr [...]


  2. This is a remarkably conservative introduction to how to read and why His selection of texts is also quite conservative and illustrative of his ideological positioning What is most interesting is that he spends so much time criticising the very idea of reading from within an ideological position that he appears completely blind to the fact of his own ideology or even that it is an ideology This ideology is most clearly illuminated at the end of the book when he discusses why it is good to read h [...]



  3. Really dull and pedantic view of literature, IMO On the one hand, it purports to explain why one should read I ll save you the time and money read for enjoyment On the other hand, it contains many references to literature that it makes almost no sense to read it unless you have already read the copious books Prof Bloom makes reference to All of this begs the question To whom is this book targeted I humbly suggest To no one in particular.As someone who posits that literature should be read for pl [...]


  4. I thoroughly enjoyed this book I enjoyed it not as a didactic exposition of reading and its values, which it is not, but as an example of how works of literature might be read and what profit there is in reading good works of literature well Having read a number of Bloom s works and several reviews of this present book, I knew at the onset that its title may seem misleading Yes, it is true that in his Prologue Bloom articulates five principles or suggestions or general observations about reading [...]


  5. Mega Yale lit critic Harold Bloom is an intelligent reader with a love for good literature, which I admire I enjoyed his enjoyment of reading, his philosophy of reading, and message on the importance of solitary reading reading quality lit all of which will positively influence the way that I approach reading, and I am very grateful for it This said, I had just a few issues 1 I feel that the book is of a personal work for him it s like I m Really Old 69 when this book was published and Here s [...]


  6. The safest general characterization of the European philosophical Western literary tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato reproductions of Shakespeare Alfred N Whitehead Harold Bloom Il saggio del decano dei critici letterari statunitensi Harold Bloom poggia su un grosso equivoco legato al titolo, che pi correttamente sarebbe dovuto essere Come si leggono questi libri che vi dico io e perch , con il sottotitolo E se non siete d accordo, siete dei poveracci.Nella prefazio [...]


  7. i love harold bloom i just read all his stuff i had to stop reading this one, though, because, essentially, you have to ve read everything that bloom s read to appreciate it, and i m not quite yet that old it really should be entitled how to reread and why , cause the book is one ginormous spoiler he really really really loves shakespeare, too, and he doesn t let ye forget it i ll come back to it in some years he s still a great writer.


  8. I don t think Harold Bloom can so much as take a shit without referencing the act to Shakespeare in some way, shape or form.I understand now that he is a Shakespeare scholar, but prior to picking up this book, I had no idea I knew him to be a literary critic and scholar and therefore assumed he would be treating the topic of reading and literature to an academic analysis Really, the book should be titled How to Read Everything as an Offshoot of Shakespeare On the general topic of reading he has [...]


  9. Before getting this book from the library, I had heard of Harold Bloom, but I had never read any of his books Most of what I d heard was positive so I was really looking forward to reading How to Read and Why.But, alas, I was not prepared for Bloom s massive erudition, and his prologue pretty much finished me off Consider, for example, this sample from page 23 of the Scribner edition, Value, in literature as in life, has much to do with the idiosyncratic, with the excess by which meaning gets st [...]


  10. Breve test di controllo sulla assimilazione degli argomenti dibattuti nel volume.Se alla fine del libro ipotesi a brucerete la vostra biblioteca per non correre il rischio di contaminare l opera completa di Shakespeare da pericolosi influssi pre shakespeariani, post shakespeariani o orrore anti shakespeariani,ovvero,avvierete le pratiche per la modifica del vostro nome o cognome fa lo stesso in Shakespeare,ovvero,ucciderete, stuprerete, mutilerete nel nome di Shakespeare,il libro avr raggiunto i [...]


  11. Harold Bloom is an elitist, a snob, a horrible sexist, and as an Ivy League professor, could care less He is not here to make friends, he is here to inform us that we are incredibly under read and that we are reading for the wrong reasons Once he gets past his ranting in the beginning regarding the politics of education regarding not pursuing excellence, that reading is in no way improving of society as in his mind it is a selfish act , and spending long dreary moments denouncing feminism in lit [...]


  12. This is one of my absolute favorite books It is a psychological perspective of becoming a bibliophile Even deeper, though, it explicitly describes how we become connected to a story, a character, a moment How does reading turn into experiencing Why does it happen What do author s do to make sure you love the experience or at least remember it forever Why do we strive to gain this experience What characters should we turn to so we can meet that need These are the questions and answers of the book [...]


  13. Well, to be blunt to begin, Bloom is a snob when it comes to what is worth reading, and when it comes to the works I ve read that he discusses, I disagree with his interpretations on at least half of them But who wants to only read things that agree with what they already think I may differ with him quite a bit, but Bloom is passionate about his reading There are than a few of his opinions that made me look at a work differently My opinion may not have been his, but the act of reassessing opini [...]


  14. Demasiadas coisas m s, acabei o livro a bufar, mais ainda depois de um ep logo sobre escritas rab nicas Opto por justificar esta minha impress o em quatro pontos, o primeiro central, dois menores, e por fim o maior problema deste livro.Primeiro, este um livro que n o fala absolutamente nada sobre aquilo que o seu t tulo prop e, ou seja, nada dito sobre o Como, assim como nada dito sobre o Porqu , de ler, literatura ou outra forma escrita qualquer Bloom limita se a mais uma vez, depois de o ter f [...]



  15. how to read what harold bloom reads i agree with idea reading is ultimately private, not necessarily socially ameliorative, nor productive of greater mind or heart, but also that it is that people read that is important rather than set texts must be read most texts chosen i have read, some with less impact than suggested, some i have not read or remember only vaguely i do not read poems much, i value plays in production not text no surprises, no texts that are not eurocentric or american, no e [...]


  16. I couldn t get into this Slow and turgid prose It brought back nightmares from college English having to read impenetrable, pedantic prose You know, the types of books you would have to read and re read and re read to understand WTF the author was saying Bloom worships Shakespeare too I ve never been into the Bard You almost expect a test after reading each chapter I made it to the poetry section and said adieu.


  17. Why Not to Read This BookHarold Bloom definitely gets off on Shakespeare, and his decision on how good other writers are is based off the criteria of how Shakespearean they are This book also doesn t go into how to read or why This book is about what to read, according to Harold Bloom His book isn t very Shakespearean though, so I wouldn t bother reading it.


  18. Boring Bloom has picked up some pieces of literature Short stories, poems, Novels, and plays and sort of introduces them to you Of course I m not well acquainted with any literature, leave alone English s, but this guy still didn t succeed in what the title of his book suggests.



  19. I thought there were a lot of smart, astute observations although Bloom, possibly being the most well read person alive today, has no qualm with telling you exactly what he thinks is good and what is garbage and what you should read and why and how you should read it As a premise, this sounds nosy and elitist but I didn t find it off putting I actually found a lot of great insight in his short explications More than any observation about a work in particular, it was Bloom s personal experience a [...]


  20. Well, I am sure that Mr Bloom is a lot smarter and definitely educated than I am Sadly that doesn t stop him from being an annoying jerk who thinks he is above everyone else, apparantely.I am not in the habit of leaving a book half finished, but in this case I was seriously thinking about it The style in the translation, at least, but probably in the original as well was pompous just for the sake of pompousness is that even a word , and the amount of repetition was simply mind numbing.I can man [...]


  21. La saggistica non un genere che amo particolarmente, anzi credo che questo di Bloom sia il primo trattato di critica letteraria che ho letto, escludendo i volumi scolastici e universitari Purtroppo come inizio non stato dei migliori innanzitutto il titolo fuorviante, perch il testo non offre un metodo di lettura, ma semplicemente una carrellata di tutti i libri preferiti dell autore, quelli che lui ritiene fondamentali per la formazione dell individuo ed essendo un critico americano, la predomin [...]


  22. Every reader should read this book Harold Bloom seems to have as many admirers as the detractors, for various reasons, but he makes makes sense to me when he outlines the meaning of reading and unless you dive deeper into what he is saying and apply that to the books you read you wont be able to discover for yourself what he means So, I ve decided after reading the first couple of chapters to cover the books he discusses in this book as I go along this book to really understand what he is saying [...]


  23. I read this sometime in 2008, 2009 I just skimmed this book, reading only Bloom s take on a handful of authors and his chapter summaries It is an uneven collection of essays It is only when dealing with his favorite authors Shakespeare, Cormac McCarthy, Faulkner that his discussion becomes rapt and interesting Bloom s answers to the two central questions How to read Why read seem forced Bloom is not a very articulate critic in the sense that his appreciation of a writer s merits is often obfusca [...]


  24. I skipped about a third of the book when I realized he was just going to talk about Shakespeare, and I was already quite informed of Bloom s love for him I guess I should have guessed that Bloom had an idea of the correct way of reading, but I found myself disagreeing with a lot of what he said Sometimes he would say things that really struck a chord with me, but then he would go ahead and say how much crap we read at this day and age It was better before, apparently.


  25. This book made me not ever want to read again And I didn t, for about six months This book is geared toward the top 1% of English professors It s like reading 250 pages of the New York times He s not interested in engaging the average reader, just impressing some etherial elite group somewhere If you love reading, STAY AWAY from this book.
