  1. “inventing humans”—methinks HB would enjoy that play

    score, Saddleshoos

  2. I’ve read Bloom’s “Shakespeare: Invention of the Human”. It’s a good one!

  3. Do read the Shakespearean works being discussed in the book before delving into Bloom, though. His insights are very illuminating. I especially loved the essays on the Falstaffiad and Hamlet. Bloom says that Hamlet and Falstaff are central to his argument on the invention of the human.
