Overview

Marxist literary and cultural theory is primarily concerned with the relationships between literature, culture, and society, and this book attempts to situate texts politically and historically. Moyra Haslett argues that Marxist literary and cultural theories are more diverse than is conventionally thought. She draws upon the work of a wide range of Marxist thinkers and discusses the works of those who sought to theorize the relationships between literature and culture and between culture and ideology, including Volosinov, Lukacs, Jameson, and Eagleton.
