Author Notes:Harold Bloom was born on July 11, 1930 in New York City. He earned his Bachelor of Arts from Cornell in 1951 and his Doctorate from Yale in 1955.

After graduating from Yale, Bloom remained there as a teacher, and was made Sterling Professor of Humanities in 1983.

In 2010 he became a founding patron of Ralston College, a new institution in Savannah, Georgia, that focuses on primary texts.
