This book is very informative and has good points, but it is so excruciatingly boring that I can barely force myself to pay attention for more than a paragraph at a time. Eagleton's views are strong, and sometimes muddle with the ideas of the people he's trying to describe. Overall, I think it's good but very unclear, or you need to be a top scholar of literature to really understand it right away.
