Review:

"This is Eagleton at his most charming and an excellent guide for literature students early in their education or those seeking a refresher course."-Publishers Weekly Publishers Weekly "A genial guide to exactly what the title promises... This short book benefits from a conversational, even humorous tone... Includes a very funny exegesis of 'Baa Baa Black Sheep' and an interpretive linkage of Dickens and Harry Potter."-Kirkus Reviews Kirkus Reviews "Part of the fun of the book is the way in which Eagleton prompts, provokes and at times infuriates. How to read How to Read Literature?...as an ideal introductory guide to critical analysis, and a thoroughly enjoyable reminder of Eagleton's own skill and subtlety as a reader."-Felicity James, Times Higher Education Supplement -- Felicity James Times Higher Education Supplement "A pleasingly readable overview of what we talk about when we talk about books... Incisive and honest."-Michael Washburn, Boston Globe -- Michael Washburn Boston Globe "How to Read Literature is a lively and engaging primer on basic strategies for appreciating literature, a kind of English 101 in a book."-Washington Post Washington Post
