In Culture, literary and cultural critic Terry Eagleton turns his attention to defining and pinpointing the role that culture plays in our lives as well as its value, traversing examples including Edmund Burke, Jonathan Swift and Oscar Wilde. This is an accessible and smart primer that explores how to critique culture under the conditions of global capitalism, though its central ideas will be familiar to those who have already encountered Eagleton’s earlier work, writes Danni Glover.
