    Sadly, I never got one of the papers myself. It was a kind of social project to promote literacy, but in another state. A few years they also used one of my poems (alongside many others) for a game...

    That brings me to memory, a long ago, I saw a guy reciting to a girl a poem in french. The girl in clouds and all. The thing, it was Baudelaire La Muse Malade...

    I think you are mixing details of his life (which are interesting, it is not because shakespeare didn't exist that we have to pretend Dickens didn't as well, and I think some of the spark that brings...

    I don't see this as a disagreement. Race is relevant (as representant of socio-cultural background), even if we study Dante or Shakespeare, which individual skill is unique, etc. Race may be not the...

    It does not matter much if it is affirmative or not. This is not new, the canon is flexible and will always change and include authors that were left behind (one person, one teacher will never really...

    I think Moby does not appeal to many addults either. But then, how many find physics appealing? Or biology? Or maths? But that prevent us from flat earth....

    And If I recall correctly, Bloom does not have Rosa in his World Canon, which implies Bloom is not familiar with the World and with the Canon.

    A world canon is obviously filled with other cultures and nobody is making anyone not read what they like. As I said, the classroom is not the only place you will have contact with literature. It has...

    This is very strange. It is like a teacher like Pip is the sole responsable for your choices and you can only read what he suggests/demands. There are or should be multiple places that will allow...

    Compass, another word from Latin.

    Like Pompey said, Shakespeare wording follows poetic device he took from continental poets (no surprise, many of his themes too), so you must turn your ear to...

    Sure you should :D

    Notice how the 3 words Kev singled are latin words, Tempest, impediment, bark, and should give us no problem at all. Unlike england, Shakespeare is not an island.

    Tennyson, another dead white man, was quite maligned in the XX century, way more than Swinburne because Tennyson was the main representative of that age, yet, his reading never went to the point he...

    Bloom real grip is a BS conservative non-sense. He is quick to add like a hypocrite several modern jewish writers in his "world canon" list because he is Jewish. He is doing exactly what he...

    That is where the pop status of him is overated, reading Bloom, I got the exactly oposite impression, very knowlledable on specific areas of western literatura (almost the anglo-saxon canon, some...

    While the status of Bloom as critic and academic cannot be ignored, he is famous because he wrote (Just like Dawkins, Umberto Eco and many others did) a book very accessible (or more than one) that...

    Funny thing, that movie have a low reputation among Coenians, as if it lacks some of the dark humor of the more heavy works and the coolness of the Lebowski comedies. I find it an almost perfect...

    That reminds me of Brothers Coen Where art thou Brother, which is my favorite movie from them. This shows Homer is good for a lot of things, even to stabilsh models that he never intented to.
