Bloom, the renowned literary critic, has launched another masterpiece that poses the age-old question from the Book of Job: "Where shall wisdom be found? " Arguing that reading itself is a quest for wisdom and that ideas are events, Bloom starts with the Bible, then moves through Plato, Cervantes, Shakespeare, Montaigne, Bacon, Johnson, Goethe, Emerson, Nietzsche, Freud, Proust, and Saint Augustine, all to decipher what these "wisdom writers" have had to say.
