I read this article by Terry Eagleton in The Guardian which I linked to today from Arts & Letters Daily. I thought it was pretty damn good and showed me a point of view I hadn't considered recently. Now, this article goes to British literature, but these days I suspect the same can be said of American lit as well. I think the fact is our literature should make us feel a little uncomfortable and challenge us, but too often it falls short of the mark. We readers are guilty of settling for being entertained or being told how-to-do something.
Gods, I love reading The Guardian's lit crit at times!
Just click title to read article.
