Thiswide-ranging book argues that criticism emerged in early bourgeoissociety as a central feature of a "public sphere" in which political, ethical, and literary judgements could mingle under the benign rule ofreason. The disintegration of this fragile culture brought on a crisisin criticism, whose history since the 18th century has been fraughtwith ambivalence and anxiety.Eagleton's accountembraces Addison and Steele, Johnson and the 19-century reviewers, suchcritics as Arnold and Stephen, the heyday of Scrutiny and New Criticism, and finally the proliferation of avant-garde literary theories such as deconstructionism. The Function of Criticism isnothing less than a history and critique of the "critical institution"itself. Eagleton's judgements on individual critics are sharp andilluminating, which his general argument raises crucial questions aboutthe relations between language, literature and politics.
