Customer Review

on 16 October 2001
Though many people believe this book to have been superceded, there is still a considerable academic body of opinion which believes that it is still the best introduction to Literary Theory around. Eagleton in print comes across much as he does face to face, eloquent and personable, and the comparitive readibility of this work (compared to some other theoretical works) speaks volumes for its value. Though admittedly somewhat reductive (inevitably for an introduction) in places, "Literary Theory: an Introduction" is still one of the best Dummies guides around. I am now a postgraduate and still refer to this book regularly, if only as a point of departure for looking at primary texts. Invaluable to the student of English and any related discipline.
