Description

Describes that cultural theory must start thinking ambitiously - not so that it can hand the West its legitimation, but so that it can seek to make sense of the grand narratives in which it is embroiled.

Reviews

'Showily, and wittily, Eagleton yearns for a species of salvation or transcendence from cultural theories' Prospect '...An original thinker whose passion and zest for life, and writing, remain, after years in the famously desiccating groves of academe, undiminished' the Independent Magazine 'After Theory's huge achievement is to show just how formidable a presence the Marxist cultural critic can be, even here in the thronged and dismaying universe of Bush, Blair, Derrida and the celebrated M Jean Baudrilland' Independent on Sunday
