Eagleton quotes
Socialism is the completion of democracy, not the negation of it.
Eagleton
Deconstruction... insists not that truth is illusory but that it is institutional.

Eagleton Terry
The most compelling confirmation of Marx's theory of history is late capitalist society. There is a sense in which this case is becoming truer as time passes.
Terry Eagleton quotes
History works itself out by an inevitable internal logic.
Terry Eagleton
Chaucer was a class traitor
Shakespeare hated the mob
Donne sold out a bit later
Sidney was a nob.
Eagleton Terry quotes
The truth is that the past exists no more than the future, even though it feels as though it does.
