Has Harold Bloom reviewed Dune?

Does anyone know if Harold Bloom, the famous literary critic, has ever reviewed Dune? (old or new ones)
If I ever stopped writing, my head would explode.

I don't know yet, but I found this in a forum discussion about Bloom calling 2007 Nobel Prize in Literature
winner Doris Lessing's book "fourth rate science fiction", leading to a definition:

The four rates of science fiction:
First-rate: Clarke, Asimov, Heinlein
Second-rate: Hubbard, Ewoks Pop-up Adventures series, I, Robot The Book Of The Movie
Third-rate: Haunted Mansions of Dune by Frank Herbert's Ex-Wife's Chiropractor, 2004
Fourth-rate: Lessing, Colbert

Oh that's just awesome!

And sounds like he enjoys Ed Wood movies, since I think he's referencing the casting of his girlfriends chiropractor as a replacement for Bela Lugosi.

If he hasn't, then, by God, he needs to get his ass in gear!
