The English Novel: An Introduction by Terry Eagleton

Vut
this is not a novel it is a review to the english novel. It a very good beginning to the study of the English if you have read some them. I found it enlighting and informative. Very useful.

Eagleton's Marxism is the equal of his master Raymond Williams, but he has more feeling for literature, as this survey reveals.

Still, what he has to say about the major British novelists needs to be qualified paragraph by paragraph.

Since this book was published, Eagleton seems to have become a sort of academic turned popularizer, much like Harold Bloom. He's gone from "advanced" criticism to "beginner" books, which is a nice way for a prof to make a living, but not of much interest to serious students of the subject.

Terry Eagleton is a British professor of Literature who has written an excellent, quotable and recondite account of English Literature from the seventeenth through the twentieth century to today!

Eagleton's book is not for the novice unfamiliar with the works he discusses. The book would serve well in a college course on English literature. As an English major and lifelong reader of English Literature I would recommend the book highly.

Excellent!
