Before meeting, you will read Harold Bloom's excellent, short book on how to appreciate the great works of the Western canon.

This book is illuminating and inspiring; it's an excellent starting point for anyone who feels called to pursue a more focused and disciplined life of the mind.

While reading, please prepare some written observations, or at the very least some questions for discussion.

I'll begin with some remarks on the main lessons of the book, but our book clubs are primarily for you to develop your own ideas around the material.

If you have any questions, just reply to any Other Life email.

Here is Harold Bloom reading from the book.
