Robert Paul Wolff wrote a famous review of The Closing of the American Mind in which he explained that 'Allan Bloom' was really the fictional creation of Saul Bellow, in the tradition of Moses Herzog, and that his 'book' was a satirical send-up of Chicago-style Great-Books pedantry—a 'coruscatingly funny novel in the form of a pettish, bookish, grumpy, reactionary complaint against the last two decades.' The conceit seemed a telling one, and it stuck.
