Terry Eagleton's Marxist reading of Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights has a new disciple:
Art, Literature and Culture from a Marxist Perspective
Tony McKenna
Palgrave MacMillan
ISBN 9781137526601
Publication Date August 2015

Art, Literature and Culture from a Marxist Perspective provides a journey through some of the most salient and abiding instances of art, literature, TV series and film. The analysis ranges from more classical works such as the paintings of Van Gogh or the writing of Balzac and Brontë, right through to those on the cutting edge of contemporary culture including HBO's Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, The Walking Dead and the music of Tupac Shakur. The author demonstrates, with a lucid and literary style, how these works are able to weave into a fantasy fabric the fundamental forms of the historical realities in which we are enmeshed. McKenna shows how each is stamped with that historical necessity.
Chapter 17 is "Literary Love as Transcendental Sublime: Wuthering Heights and The Sea, The Sea "
