Genius: A Mosaic of One Hundred Exemplary Creative Minds

Describe the connection issue. But this is Bloom's list, not mine. Nor have I read every one of the one hundred essays. I doubt that many reviewers would. But I've read enough to see that Bloom gives me new insights into those that I know the best, and he introduces me to some that I don't really know at all, but now that I have learned something about them I would gladly know more.

Bloom says "Since everyone involved is both madly honorable and honorably lustful, all this passion is admirably enthralling. On another novel, Bloom quotes Robert M. Adams, "Whether you like Julien Sorel, and for what parts of his behavior, depends then, on who you think you are and what conspiracies or complicities your imagination allows you to join.

I loved the first three-quarters of the book and then thought that Standhal blew it with the ending. Julien was a scoundrel, but I didn't think so when I was an ambitious young man, and I empathized with him.

I've not cared for Faulkner ever since. The pieces I read seemed to have no periods, the sentences going on endlessly since then I've written a few endless sentences myself. They also seemed to be downers, the writer drowning in his own unhappiness, not looking for rescue from the reader, but trying to drag the reader in with him. Bloom confirms me in my belief that Faulkner is rather morbid, and I don't like morbid reading.

Genius: an invitation to the literary wisdom of Harold Bloom

Several times in the relatively recent past I thought I might want to try Faulkner again. Were not the words that made Was it not truth that you knew before? And these words brought home to me a genius of whom I had only second-hand knowledge. Maggie Papandreou, wife of the later Greek Prime Minister Andreas Papandreou, once said to me of the time she and her husband were working on the presidential campaign of Adlai Stevenson some of whose speeches I can appreciate by having heard them on tape , "We died for him!

Genius, in its writings, is our best path for reaching wisdom, which I believe to be the true use of literature for life. Again Bloom quotes Emerson as slyly observing, "Only an inventor knows how to borrow," and Isaac D'Israeli, "many men of genius must arise before a particular man of genius can appear. I was disappointed not to see the name of Anthony Trollope among his distinguished peers in a pantheon to which he truly belongs.
