    “When I left that icy prison I’d no idea where north and south were but I did have two very strong convictions.

    necessary process of strengthening oneself, even the benefit of a degree of selfishness, are themes that appear throughout How to Read and Why by Harold Bloom and “I Stepped from Plank to Plank” by Emily Dickinson. Harold Bloom’s thesis is that how and what one reads has to be distinctly personalized to themselves; because of our constant race against the clock, reading needs to be for the individual alone. Dickinson enforces this idea of solitary exploration and…
