How to contact Terry Eagleton

Should you (as Deane Galbraith did recently) wish to contact Tezza himself – now at the University of Lancaster – then you will eventually stumble on this page, where the following appears:

PLEASE NOTE: Terry Eagleton does not use email. If you wish to contact him please write to him at his departmental address: Professor Terry Eagleton, Department of English & Creative Writing, County College, Lancaster University, Lancaster LA1 4YD, UK.

However, being an inventive sort of chap and being too polite to contact Eagleton’s (fifth) wife, Deane chatted with his good friend, who suggested the following approach:

      1. Why, a Marxist Christian scared of the 21st century? Comrade Professor, I fear you are making sport of me.

  1. Hello Prof. T. Eagleton,
    I am a participant in the Jordanian philosophical Association and the socialist forum. I will give a lecture about your book ” The Illusion of Postmodernism”.
    I have a weak and unclear Arabic translation for your book.Is it possible that you send me a broadened idea regarding it in English?
    Your language seems a bit obscure to me and I will be thankful if you you can use a more common language.
    Thanks very much in advance

  3. Dear Professor Eagleton,

    I’m Maryam Dadkhah and I’m studying theatre studies in University of Tehran, Iran. My thesis title is “Textual unconscious and ideology in dramatic literature”. I’m studying Iranian plays which were written before Islamic revolution, in 50’s and 60’s and for this study I’m using Jameson’s Political Unconscious and Althusser’s theories about “Ideology”, and of course, your books. I’m writing this email in order to make a request: would it be possible for me to meet you and talk with you about my thesis, some time in September?
    If the answer is a yes, then it would be a huge honor for me to meet you in person and discuss my thesis with you.

    Sincerely yours,

    Maryam Dadkhah
