[Haskell-cafe] Closures and pointfree functions

Dear all,

In the Haskell Wiki at http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Closure
there is an example for a function returning a closure given as
  f x = (\y -> x + y)

Another way to achieve the same effect would be to write
  f' x = (+) x

which to me as a beginner looks somewhat like pointfree style.

Would f' be considered to return a closure?
