Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
In The Task of the Critic, Matthew Beaumont compiles fourteen official interviews conducted with Eagleton since the 1980s, interweaving these with new, original and comprehensive interviews to provide readers with a contemporary frame through which to view his thought. Opening with a preface by Eagleton, the conversations narrate not only his own intellectual development but that of the Left over almost half a century, tying his recent return to religious themes with his intellectual formation on the Catholic Left in the 1960s and to the theological interests of influential thinkers like Žižek and Badiou.

This volume will appeal not only to those with a specific interest in Eagleton himself and in the fate of the Left, but also to those interested in the trajectories of Anglo-American literary theory in a digestible, stimulating format.

Book Description: Verso Books, United Kingdom, 2009. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New. 210 x 140 mm. Brand New Book. The leading literary theorist is dissected in interview. This is an easily accessible guide to his views. Terry Eagleton occupies a unique position in the English-speaking world today. He is not only a productive literary theorist, but also a novelist and playwright. He remains a committed socialist deeply hostile to the zeitgeist. Over the last forty years his public interventions have enlivened an otherwise bland and conformist culture. His pen, as many colleagues in the academy - including Harold Bloom, Gayatri Spivak and Homi Bhabha - have learnt, is merciless and unsparing. As a critic Eagleton has not shied away from confronting the high priests of native conformity as highlighted by his coruscating polemic against Martin Amis on the issue of civil liberties and religion. This comprehensive volume of interviews covers both his life and the development of his thought and politics. Lively and insightful, they will appeal not only to those with an interest in Eagleton himself, but to all those interested in the evolution of radical politics, modernism, cultural theory, the history of ideas, sociology, semantic inquiry and the state of Marxist theory.
