The Ballad of Marxist Criticism.
Gary Day, Times Higher Education Supplement "As this anthology makes clear, Eagleton's work has been held together for nearly 20 years by a startling proposal for the reform of the academic syllabus."
"If the humanities are to be rescued from their current state of over-specialised torpor, then Eagleton's work will be one of the main sources to which the reformers will turn." Morning Star
