Perhaps this is a way too specific question. I'm looking at all the classes I could take next year (I'm in the class of 2014) and Harold Bloom is teaching two classes. Now, I won't say this man is THE reason I applied, but he was up there. For his classes, there no prerequisite, but it says "permission of instructor required".... does that mean a meager freshmen has no hopes of being able to take it? I can only imagine it comes down to seniority, as he's a rather popular figure on campus.
