From the Publisher"Eagleton's presentation of the history of the novel is admirablyclear and almost entirely free of the disfiguring jargon so reliedupon by theorists and bamboozlers."
The Irish Independentà
"Eagleton, almost alone among academic literary critics of hisgeneration, has never been afraid of asking big questions about bigthings. In The English Novel: An Introduction he takes aimat a very large target indeed. Being Eagleton (the mostarticulately and discriminately ideological critic of our time) hedoes, of course, do much more than merely 'introduce'. He makessense of the English novel."
John Sutherland, Lord Northcliffe Professor of Modern EnglishLiterature, UCL
