Overview

In the 30 years since this work was first published, the reputation of Eagleton (now a professor of cultural theory at the U. of Manchester, UK) as one of the foremost Marxist literary theorists has only grown. In this work he deploys a Marxist-structural approach indebted to the work of Lucien Goldmann to readings of the Bronte sisters, seeking to bring together text, author, ideology, social class, and productive forces by the mediatory concept of categorical structure. Works that receive particular attention include Jane Eyre, The Professor, Shirley, Villette, and Wuthering Heights. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
