Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Every student of English will be thankful to Regan for assembling this Reader. Useful essays frame each section and the collection as a whole serves as a splendid introduction to Eagleton's work. His delightful wit and debunking similes make reading him fun, as well as necessary."
Gary Day, Times Higher Education Supplement "As this anthology makes clear, Eagleton's work has been held together for nearly 20 years by a startling proposal for the reform of the academic syllabus."
"If the humanities are to be rescued from their current state of over-specialised torpor, then Eagleton's work will be one of the main sources to which the reformers will turn." Morning Star
