Media reviews

“[Heathcliff and the Great Hunger] is not merely a series of studies on Irish culture, but one of the most noteworthy contributions to it in recent times.”—London Review of Books

“Absorbing and original”—Sunday Telegraph

“Absorbing and original.”—Sunday Telegraph

“Erudite and ingenious.”—Spectator

“Provoking in the best sense, and written with wit, passion, sophistication and brio a brilliant tour de force.”—Independent

“Terry Eagleton has not just produced an impressive cultural history or reunited the literary and the political, he has provided a frame through which Britain and Ireland can re-vision a shared and savage past. In doing so, Eagleton has confirmed his standing as second to none among cultural critics writing in the English language today.”—Guardian

“This is Eagleton at his best: lucid, original and witty.”—Times Literary Supplement
