'In this book Eagleton offers a shrewd historical synthesis of the interaction between literature and the common culture.' (Iain Finlayson, The Times) 'Written with his characteristic wit, verve and insight, 'The Event of Literature' marks a new chapter in the developing thought of our pre-eminent literary theorist.' (London Review of Books) 'This guidebook, which steers us confidently through some of the thickets of literary theory, is of the companionable and clever variety... the skill of the writing is its cultivation of a kind of companionability, the relaxed but alert mood of an intelligence at ease into which Eagleton lulls you.' (Shahidha Bari, Times Higher Education) 'Throughout the book, Eagleton writes with his customary felicity'. (Stuart Kelly, The Guardian) --The Times, London Review of Books, Times Higher Education, The Guardian
