Interesting point.  Perhaps the issue is whether or not Bloom has attained some level of popular or celebrity status outside university English departments?  Thus, the general reader, who would never be expected to peruse his books, may now be aware of some new level of general interest in literature.

This issue came up on Friday's broadcast of the WSJ Editorial Board on CNBC:  Is Ambrose, recently deceased, less of a historian because he is more "popular" than "academic?"
