    If anyone is interested in Lacan, then please go through the book "How to read Lacan" by Slavoj Zizek. Excellent book for the beginners

    This is a good list - I've added a couple to my TBR list already. Thanks.

    If I may, I'd also like to add Gayatri Spivak's A Critique of Postcolonial Reason and Derrida's Specters of Marx.
    It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.

    Anyone else read this book?

    I read this last summer before applying to graduate schools. I liked it! Eagleton's hilarious (and I mean that in the best way possible).

    For my recommendation, I recommend Unsuspected Eloquence by James Anderson Winn. It's a pretty detailed and well-researched book about the relations between poetry and music.
