Monster. Seriously–we will never see his like again.

Such an amazing mind. Such a great book. So much more to learn–this book is basically a challenge to your reading skills & it turns out that very few of us are even going to come close.

It is like a Southern California surfer watching big wave guys–Bloom’s reading is just another thing.

And a reflection at the end of life–the asides, the commentary, the reflection, the non stop Eliot bashing–it is all here and it is all glorious.

Strongly recommended for anyone who has read Shakespeare and thinks that Dante makes as much sense as magnetism.
