/lit/ here, why is the western canon so vastly superior to any literature that non whites have produced /pol/?
In before horde of butthurt chinks, bindis and mudslimes.
Bloom never argued for that. He chalks up his ignorance of the Eastern canon as owing to a lack of suitable translations into English. It is very much easier to translate Russian and Latin and Greek than it is to translate Chinese, and the result is more readable and closer to the original source.
He was very much incensed by the total illiteracy currently plaguing the Western world, that is the real struggle. But carry on insulting the Chinese, Arabs, Indians and Japanese with your total racist ignorance.
Non whites/Japanese are cultureless human vermin. Look at how many of them cling to our Shakespeare or Mozart. Which whites care about garbage like Beijing opera or the caterwauling of a filthy Indian shitskin?
>he's never read basho, buson, issa, shiki, yosano, oe, soseki, murasaki, tanizaki, mishima, kawabata
You're a fool if you think he doesn't believe Western Literature is superior to all others.
The Western Canon begins with Homer, sandnigger.
Bonus: Bloom is a Zionist apologist and his Jewish bigotry and politic fully informs his criticism, despite his whole "I'm the non-political one" schtick.
It's always good to seen chinamen get mad when Jews outdo them. The same chinamen for whom IQ is everything, except when it shows askenazim outperforming them at everything.
Read ways that are dark, China has always been a succession of hollow rites and nothing more.
