Bless Harold Bloom. In his earlier works, this rabid intellectual set out to rescue the imperiled Western literary canon and breathe spiritual life into biblical traditions. Now in Fallen Angels (Yale), brightly &"illuminated" by Mark Podwal, Bloom offers our "religion-mad nation" his antidote to dreamy sentimentality: a tiny, muscular meditation on angels with attitude and our own flawed, heroic humanity.
