Bloom has been accused by Naomi Wolf, feminist author, of laying "his
heavy, boneless hand was hot on my thigh" while she was an independent
study student of his at Yale U.

Naomi Wolf alleges that twenty years ago, after the two had dined
together at her home and consumed a quantity of wine, Harold Bloom put
his hand on her knee. She then went into the kitchen and threw up. Bloom
remarked that she was an extremely disturbed young woman and left.

Every Yom Kippur since then Ms Wolf has been wracked with guilt for not
speaking up and thus saving other young ladies at Yale from this sexual
predator. Now she has finally done so.
