How to Read and Why
Who reads books anymore? The question's been beaten to death by many a scholar. Harold Bloom, an academic as well as a beloved teacher, reinvigorates the question with his lucid and accessible essays. Building on his recent study of Shakespeare, Bloom not only muses on the question of why we read, but supports his argument with discussions of Shakespeare, Jane Austen, and other classic authors.
