Overview

Eleanor was the youngest of three surviving Marx children. She was the only one to be born, live, love, work and die in England and to become a public figure in her own right. Yvonne Kapp, in this highly acclaimed biography, brilliantly succeeds in capturing Eleanor's spirit, from a lively child, opining on the world's affairs, to the new woman, aspiring to the stage, earning her living as a free intellectual, and helping to lead England's unskilled workers at the height of the new unionism; being always more than, yet at the same time inescapably, Marx's daughter. So inevitably—and fortunately—Eleanor's biography is also an unrivalled biography of the Marx household in Victorian London, of the Marx circle, and especially of Frederick Engels, the family's extraordinary mentor.

Author Biography: Yvonne Kapp was born Yvonne Mayer in 1903. She worked as, among other things, a writer, translator, aid worker and political activist, and died in 1999.
