Frases Terry Eagleton

„Literary texts do not exist on bookshelves:“

— Terry Eagleton
Context: Literary texts do not exist on bookshelves: they are processes of signification materialized only in the practice of reading. For literature to happen, the reader is quite as vital as the author. Chapter 2, p. 64-65

„Reading is not a straightforward linear movement,“

— Terry Eagleton
Context: Reading is not a straightforward linear movement, a merely cumulative affair: our initial speculations generate a frame of reference within which to interpret what comes next, but what comes next may retrospectively transform our original understanding, highlighting some features of it and backgrounding others. Chapter 2, p. 67 (See also: Northrop Frye)

„All consciousness is consciousness of something:“

— Terry Eagleton
Context: All consciousness is consciousness of something: in thinking I am aware that my thought is 'pointing towards' some object. Chapter 2, p. 48

„Literature transforms and intensifies ordinary language, deviates systematically from everyday speech.“

— Terry Eagleton
Context: Literature transforms and intensifies ordinary language, deviates systematically from everyday speech. If you approach me at a bus stop and murmur "Thou still unravished bride of quietness," then I am instantly aware that I am in the presence of the literary. Introduction: What is Literature?, p. 2
