Words on the Side

BrillsContent has a Story by Harold Bloom on the curious history of what we scrawl in the margins of books.

\"We read in order to live, even if in dark passages we read in order to survive. It may be that Jackson is right. Moses said to Joshua: \"Would to God that all the Lord\'s people were prophets!\" Perhaps it would be good if all readers violated the Marginalia Taboo.\"
