I ran into Harold Bloom the other day on the street and randomly invited him to come with me to the Joseph Smith Conference. He turned me down saying "I don't travel well these days." A brief conversation ensued in which I thanked him for his work on the Prophet. He responded that he was somewhat troubled with the direction that the church had moved in since "the death of that remarkable, visionary human being," then stated with an odd, piercing certainty, "And I imagine you share my sentiments, don't you?" Odd experience.
I told him I'd love to come by his office sometime and discuss his writings on Joseph Smith more at length, and he said that would be fine. I know that at least two of you (Jason and Chris P.) are avid Bloom fans. Do you have any particular questions you'd like me to ask him?
