I can only recommend the ones I have read, The Western Canon and How to Read and Why. But they are their own recommendations to his other works I suppose. I may have mentioned Northrop Frye in the past as one of my favorite authors on literary criticism and his writings are similarly both scholarly and accessible at the same time. The only bad thing about these gentlemen is that that will frighten you about how much you do not know about Western culture but should.


Yes as an un-added afterthought I realized I should have noted how utterly intimidating Bloom's literary knowledge is.
