Review Reviews of the first edition:"...a valuable book for anyone wanting to move beyond critical pieties to an understanding of the relation between the Brontës' work and their society. Dr Eagleton asks questions which ought be asked."--Juliet Dusinberre, Notes and Queries "...this is a book of real stature, of cogent and steely argument and analysis..."--Adrian Poole, Cambridge Review "The increased prominence of largely forgotten texts by women writers, working-class writers or black writers, in part came from work undertaken by Eagleton. 'But, interestingly, Terry himself hasn't really gone down that route,' says Widdowson. 'His criticism had been largely based on canonical authors, but his approach to Hardy or Lawrence or the Brontës - dealt with in the light of new theories - suggested new ways of looking at canonical texts, which have been followed through by other people. For instance, he'll take marginalized figures from books, push them to the foreground and re-shape the way in which we look at them. He takes very familiar texts and roughs them up. He calls it 'reading against the grain'."--Peter Widdowson, The Guardian"He has written wonderfully on the likes of Tennyson, Hardy, Dickens and the Brontës. He has taken the best of that old Cambridge tradition of close reading of the text, but made it socially and politically relevant. I saw him lecture on Wuthering Heights and he was very much on the side of Heathcliff. But mostly he showed that you could take a text that a whole generation of critics had abstracted from the social history of which it was part, and talk about it in terms of the tensions and conflicts which were still going on in the 1970s."--Stephen Reagan, The Guardian, 2002 About the Author Terry Eagleton is the author of nearly thirty books, including Shakespeare and Society (1967), The New Left Church (1968), Exiles and Emigrés (1970), Myths of Power (1975, second edition 1988), Marxism and Literary Criticism (1976), Literary Theory: An Introduction (1983), The Function of Criticism (1984), The Ideology of the Aesthetic (1990), The Idea of Culture (2000), a memoir - The Gatekeeper (2002) - and his most recent, After Theory (2004).
