By Shalom Freedman HALL OF FAME on October 27, 2007
I did not watch the Sampras part of this show , and will only comment on the Bloom segment.
Bloom speaks here about his passion for reading, about the decline in the ability to truly read, about the difference between reading for politically- correct agenda reasons and reading for literary- aesthetic- human wisdom - reasons. He speaks about the decline of the teaching of Literature in the universities of the United States. And he tells a bit about his own story in reading.
I do not know how true it is , but supposedly Bloom has memorized a good part of the Western world's greatest literature. His capacity for 'ingesting masterpieces' has so far as I know no real precedent. His passion and love of reading are clearly the passion of his life.
He aims to transmit this passion to us.
I enjoy Bloom's every appearance not because I necessarily agree with what he has to say about things, certainly not on the religious level- but because I learn a great deal from someone who has read so much great Literature and thought and wrote so deeply about it.
So for me any interview with him is a very great pleasure.
Rose as usual knows how to ask questions and show interest in subjects even he may not have the deepest knowledge of. He always comes prepared and does a good job.
