Harold Bloom, The Western Canon

"What shall the individual who still desires to read attempt to read, this late in history," writes Professor Bloom, in his first chapter of The Western Canon.

He also writes, "Who reads must choose, since there is not enough time to read everything, even if one does nothing but read," which is true, although I do try.
