    This book combines two recently discovered favourites of mine literary theory, and Marxist theory Of course, the two have obvious overlap, but I d never seen them united and so beautifully woven together until I read this book The chapters here are mostly essays or letters by the people mentioned on the title page, and you ll getvalue out of this book if you ve read their longer texts first, but it s not necessary you can always read them afterwards if you want to better understand the This book combines two recently discovered favourites of mine literary theory, and Marxist theory Of course, the two have obvious overlap, but I d never seen them united and so beautifully woven together until I read this book The chapters here are mostly essays or letters by the people mentioned on the title page, and you ll getvalue out of this book if you ve read their longer texts first, but it s not necessary you can always read them afterwards if you want to better understand the context.My favourite things about this book the peeks into Benjamin and Brecht s relationship as provided by Benja...

    Still surprisingly apt, even with so much time that has passed This is a well constructed collection of letter and papers on the role of art and its interaction with political thought action If you think art matters, but sometimes have a hard time articulating how or why, this book provides some nice theoretical exploration of just those issues.Special appreciation must be given to the written introductions to each exchange, establishing the stakes and particular points of disagreement Fredri Still surprisingly apt, even with so much time that has passed This is a well constructed collection of letter and papers on the role of art and its interaction with political thought action If you think art matters, but sometimes have a hard time articulating how or why, this book provides some nice th...
