f (theredcarrier) | 3 comments i don't think eagleton is implying a 'total absence', but is speaking of the great art that gets chosen, whether by elites or popularly, to be the representative art of the period, which i think is inevitable under capitalist relations of art production.

i think he's wrong about it being ONLY the radical conservatives who are significant in such a time, but i think he makes an insightful point about prevailing tendencies. it's pretty easy to think of some significant anti-pessimistic lit in the interwar period he speaks of: joyce, williams, stevens, moore, or Black radicals in harlem and chicago. don't you think so?
