Heathcliff and the Great Hunger Reviews

""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 ""Provoking in the best sense, and written with wit, passion, sophistication and brio a brilliant tour de force."" -- Independent ""This is Eagleton at his best: lucid, original and witty."" --Times Literary Supplement ""Erudite and ingenious."" -- Spectator ""Absorbing and original"" -- Sunday Telegraph "Absorbing and original." - Sunday Telegraph ""[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
