The idea of culture by Terry Eagleton ( Book )
29 editions published between 1985 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 1,588 libraries worldwide
"In what amounts to a major statement, with pointed relevance to the world in the new millennium, Eagleton launches a critique of postmodern 'culturalism', arguing instead for a more complex relation between Culture and Nature, and trying to retrieve the importance of such concepts as human nature from a non-naturalistic perspective. His book sets its face against a certain fashionable populism in this area, as well as drawing attention to the deficiencies of elitism. It makes radical inquiry into the reasons, both creditable and discreditable, why 'culture' has come in our own period to bulk as large as it does, and provocatively proposes that it is time, while acknowledging its significance, to put it back in its place."--BOOK JACKET.

Holy terror by Terry Eagleton ( Book )
18 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 1,296 libraries worldwide
"Terry Eagleton's examination of the idea of terror draws on political, philosophical, literary, and theological sources to trace a genealogy from the ancient world to the modern day. Ranging from the cult of Dionysus, through Shakespearian tragedy and the politics of Danton and Hegel, to the thought of Freud and Lacan, it takes in en route ideas of God, freedom, the nation, the sublime, and the unconscious. It also examines the problem of evil, and devotes a concluding chapter to the idea of tragic sacrifice and the scapegoat."--Jacket.

"So what is the meaning of life? Terry Eagleton show how centuries of thinkers - from Shakespeare and Schopenhauer to Marx, Sartre, and Beckett - have tackled the question. Eagleton reveals how the question has become particularly problematic in modern times. Instead of addressing it head-on, we take refuge from the feelings of 'meaninglessness' in our lives by filling them with a multitude of different things: from football and sex, to New Age religions and fundamentalism."--BOOK JACKET.

Scholars and rebels in nineteenth-century Ireland by Terry Eagleton ( Book )
7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 977 libraries worldwide
"Terry Eagleton's book provides a novel account of Ireland's neglected 'national' intellectuals. This extraordinary group, including such figures as Oscar Wilde's father William Wilde, Charles Lever, Samuel Ferguson, Isaac Butt and Sheridan Le Fanu, was a kind of Irish version of 'Bloomsbury' (they were doctors, lawyers, economists, writers and amateurs, rather than academics). Their work, much of it published in the pages of the Dublin University Magazine, was deeply caught up in networks of kinship, shared cultural interests, and intersecting biographies in the outsized village of nineteenth-century Dublin. Eagleton explores the preoccupations of this remarkable community, in all its fascinating ferment and diversity, through the lens of Antonio Gramsci's definitions of 'traditional' and 'organic' intellectuals, and maps the nature of its relation to the young Ireland movement, combining his account with some reflections on intellectual work in general and its place in political life."--BOOK JACKET.

After theory by Terry Eagleton ( Book )
22 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and Turkish and held by 960 libraries worldwide
"For anyone forced to wrestle with the likes of Derrida, Barthes, and Kristeva during their college days, Terry Eagleton needs no introduction. His primer on literary theory was (and remains) an indispensable guide to the postmodern era in the humanities. Now he argues that the age of cultural theory has come to a close - and looks at what should follow. Tracing the rise and fall of postmodern ideas from the 1960s through the 1990s, Eagleton explores the factors that brought them to the forefront, and with characteristic wit, offers a candid assessment of the resultant gains and losses." "As After Theory argues, rather than shy away from big questions and grand narratives, today's global political situation demands we pay attention to a range of topics that have largely gone ignored by the academy and public alike - from fundamentalism to objectivity, religion to ethics, being to non-being."--Jacket.
Reason, faith, & revolution : reflections on the God debate by Terry Eagleton ( Book )
5 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 958 libraries worldwide
On the one hand, Eagleton demolishes what he calls the "superstitious" view of God held by most atheists and agnostics and offers in its place a revolutionary account of the Christian Gospel. On the other hand, he launches a stinging assault on the betrayal of this revolution by institutional Christianity. There is little joy here, then, either for the anti-God brigade -- Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens in particular -- nor for many conventional believers. --from publisher description

Myths of power : a Marxist study of the Brontës by Terry Eagleton ( Book )
29 editions published between 1975 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 778 libraries worldwide
Myths of Power sets out to interpret the fiction of the Bront︠ sisters in light of a Marxist analysis of the historical conditions in which it was produced. Its aim is not merely to relate literary facts, but by a close critical examination of the novels, to find in them a significant structure of ideas and values which related to the Bront︠s' ambiguous situation within the class-system of their society. Its intention is to forge close relations between the novels, nineteenth-century ideology, and historical forces, in order to illuminate the novels themselves in a radically new perspective. When originally published in 1975 (second edition in 1988), it was the first full-length Marxist study of the Bront︠s and is now reissued to celebrate 30 years since its first publication. It includes a new Introduction by Terry Eagleton which reflects on the changes which have happened in Marxist literary criticism since 1988, and situates this reissue of the second edition in current debates on literary theory.
