Shakespearian and Other Essays

Author: James Smith Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 11/03/2010

The late James Smith was a polymath scholar and critic, known to a large circle of readers for one or two critical articles of great weight and acuteness. As a busy professor in the University of Fribourg, he published very little more, but was working all his life on two uncompleted books, one on Shakespeare, one on the tradition of English literature. At his death, a good deal was in draft. Originally published in 1974, this volume, edited by Professor E. M. Wilson, presents a coherent body of essays on Shakespeare's comedies, and adds at the end five of the essays for which Smith was already well known. This is more than a literary memorial to a highly self-critical scholar who published little. It is a body of studies which was welcomed and prized by those familiar with Smith's name. New readers meanwhile will find in this principal critical work the expression of a vigorous and sensitive critical mind.

Terry Eagleton

Terry Eagleton

Author: James Smith Format: Hardback Release Date: 23/05/2008

Terry Eagleton is one of the most influential contemporary literary theorists and critics. His diverse body of work has been crucial to developments in cultural theory and literary critical practice in modern times, and for a generation of humanities students his writing has been a source of both provocation and enjoyment. This book undertakes a lucid and detailed analysis of Eagletons oeuvre. It gives close attention to the full range of Eagletons major publications, examining their arguments and implications, as well as how they have intervened in wider debates in cultural theory. It also investigates his less familiar works, such as his early writing on the Catholic left, as well as other as yet unpublished material, showing how these works can be understood alongside the more prominent areas of his thought. Through this, this book offers a cohesive overview of Eagletons career to date, tracing the development of his theoretical positions, and an assessment of Eagletons wider contributions to fields such as Marxist literary criticism and cultural theory. It will be essential reading for students of literary criticism, cultural theory, and intellectual history.
