From: Rickard A. Parker
=========================
... Shakespeare, Samuel Johnson, and Ralph Waldo Emerson are the
heroes; T. S. Eliot - who does make the list - heads the roster of
authors with whom Bloom is out of sympathy, a roster of refuses that
also includes Edith Wharton and Fyodor Dostoevsky, who nonetheless
make the list, and George Bernard Shaw and Vladimir Nabokov, who are
excluded. ...
=========================

Ah Bloomie baby. The Bloom is off the rose.

He is of the generation who had their minds blown
by a whole new approach with which they could not
cope. The standard expository mind flops again.

Cheers,
Peter
