Hmn. Do you really think he feels this way? It seems to me that much of his criticism is about canon-making, whether or not a particular was involved. So I'm not sure I believe him.
Me either, Art.
I am skeptical about the whole interview. Perhaps I am being too cynical, but I wonder about the credentials of the interviewer and the legitimacy of the comments attributed to Bloom. THe bottom line is this: I rather doubt that Bloom would consent to an interview of this type with this person for this site.
