An amazing introduction to literary theory.

It is a well-established complaint about TE that he recycles others' theories rather than writing something challenging himself. But there was always something else wrong, difficult to pin down, but connected with a ridiculously credulous attitude to leftist ideology. Then a few months ago he dropped his bombshell by coming out as a Catholic - suddenly, the absence of gay/queer studies from his book, his lack of intellectual rigour, his defensive and hysterical sneers against people like Larkin and Amis, all began to make sense. He was writing books purporting to be based on reason, whilst all the time supporting the world's largest homophobic hate machine.
