http://nhw.livejournal.com/188286.html[return][return]I admit I only bought this lit crit book on intellectual life in nineteenth century Ireland because the author footnoted an article I wrote back in 1995. An interesting enough (and mercifully short) book, but he jumps around a bit chronologically, which is confusing, and on the science stuff I think he should have read my 1999 book as well. The first chapter was too densely written, and the economics chapter too boring, but the rest was good.

Eagleton manages to take an interesting topic and through postmodern academic masturbatory prose render it lifeless.
