How to Read and Why

Author:Harold Bloom

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.
