The first chapter traces the history of English literary theory from Matthew Arnold, through Leavisism, to Raymond Williams, criticising organicist, gradualist and phenomenological tendencies which insist on a sensually distinct and authentic proletarian culture.

Marxism was introduced by Karl Marx. Most Marxist critics, who were writing in what could chronologically be specified as the early period of Marxist literary criticism, subscribed to what has come to be called " Vulgar Marxism. Therefore, literary texts are a reflection of the economic base rather than "the social institutions from which they originate" for all social institutions, or, more precisely human—social relationships, are in the final analysis determined by the economic base. According to Marxists, even literature itself is a social institution and has a specific ideological function, based on the background and ideology of the author. The English literary critic and cultural theorist Terry Eagleton defines Marxist criticism this way:.
Its objective is to assist in the supersession of these particularisms and the re-composition of their problem-areas into a conceptually unified domain under the command of historical materialism. Criticism and Ideology is also and very evidently a transitional work, not only by virtue of the place that it will come to occupy in a lengthening sequence of books, but also, as Eagleton himself observes, because of the modifications and developments of argument that occur within it, in a compositional series whose order is not that of the published volume. The remarks that follow are made on this understanding; what they represent is not a critique—as of a consolidated intellectual position, in the name of a stable alternative—or even a comprehensive review of the standard kind, but a series of notes, neither complete nor conclusive, written in counterpoint to some key themes invoked in or arising from the book. Criticism and Ideology is the first major study in Marxist literary theory to be written in England in forty years—that is an important part of its distinction. It is also, Eagleton would add, the cause of its embarrassment.

Чатрукьяну было всего двадцать три года, и он относительно недавно начал работать в команде обеспечения безопасности, однако был хорошо подготовлен и отлично знал правила: в шифровалке постоянно дежурил кто-то из работников его службы… особенно по субботам, когда не было криптографов. Он немедленно включил монитор и повернулся к графику дежурств на стене. - Чья смена? - громко спросил он, пробегая глазами список. Согласно расписанию, в полночь должен был заступить на двойную смену новый сотрудник по имени Зейденберг. Чатрукьян еще раз обвел глазами пустую лабораторию и нахмурился.
Задняя стенка ангара бесследно исчезла прямо перед. Такси все еще двигалось рядом, тоже въехав на газон. Огромный лист гофрированного металла слетел с капота автомобиля и пролетел прямо у него над головой. С гулко стучащим сердцем Беккер надавил на газ и исчез в темноте. ГЛАВА 84 Джабба вздохнул с облегчением, припаяв последний контакт. Выключив паяльник, он отложил в сторону фонарик и некоторое время отдыхал, лежа под большим стационарным компьютером.
Травматическая пуля, - задумчиво повторил Беккер. - Вот откуда шрам. - Весьма сомнительно, чтобы Танкадо связал свои ощущения с выстрелом. - И все же он отдал кольцо, - сказал Фонтейн. - Вы правы, сэр. Но он не искал глазами убийцу.
Я должен был тебя предупредить, но не знал, что сегодня твое дежурство.
