A Little Bit More on Misreading


What I was talking about when I mentioned Misreader featuring misreads and getting things wrong doesn't have anything to do with Harold Bloom.

I think his idea of writers and artists misreading each other in linear procession A to B is romantic, and good story-telling, but as I see it misreading is endemic to the act of reading on the language level. For instance, is the photoshopped image below a picture of young Harold Bloom or Ludwig Wittgenstein with a glandular problem?
