"An impressive display of erudition."--Publishers Weekly
"Eagleton is a clear, combative writer whom it is always a pleasure to read, even--or especially--for those who disagree with him. Culture exhibits his virtues to the full."--Theodore Dalrymple, author of Our Culture, What's Left of It
"Eagleton's central notion, that culture is the 'social unconscious, ' is beautifully delineated. He gives us a seamless journey from Marx, through Nietzsche and Freud, to Burke, Herder, Wittgenstein, T.S. Eliot and Wilde, but at the same time takes in popular idioms, in a hugely satisfying marriage of 'high' and 'low.' Reflection at a level we used to take for granted among scholars but is now all too rare."--Peter Watson, author of The Age of Nothing: How We Have Sought To Live Since The Death of God

Terry Eagleton is distinguished professor of English literature, University of Lancaster. He lives in Northern Ireland.
