  • Saul Bellow: 1915 - 2005

    I had been wondering about him, just the other day, so when I saw the notice of his death, it came accompanied by a feeling of synchronicity.

    His work is not, of course, to every reader's taste. Still, for me, American literature of the 20th century would be quite a bit poorer without The Adventures of Augie March, Herzog, and Mr. Sammler's Planet. I also liked Humboldt's Gift, but I'm less sure about its stature.

    His influence has been wide, even in sf. It's difficult to imagine sections of Silverberg's Dying Inside without the earlier example of Herzog.

    In pace requiescat.

    Are there any actual admirer's of Bellow's work here?

    I mean besides me, of course.


    P.S. So far, it appears not.
