Terry Eagleton is among the such a lot important—and so much radical—theorists writing this present day. His witty and acerbic assaults on modern tradition and society are learn and loved via many, and his experiences of literature are considered as classics of latest criticism.
Ranging around the key works of Raymond Williams, Lenin, Trostsky, Brecht, Adorno, Benjamin, Lukacs and Sartre, he develops a nuanced critique of conventional literary feedback whereas generating a compelling theoretical account of ideology.
Eagleton makes use of this attitude to supply attention-grabbing analyses of canonical writers, together with George Eliot, Charles Dickens, Joseph Conrad, Henry James, T.S. Eliot, W.B. Yeats, James Joyce and D.H. Lawrence.
