Para Marx (1818 - 1883), o ser humano é livre quando produz sem o agulhão da necessidade física. Esta é a natureza essencial de todos os indivíduos. Eagleton nos faz ver que Marx está mais preocupado com a diferença do que com a igualdade e que a liberdade, para ele, implicaria a libertação do trabalho comercial: “superabundância criativa acima do que é materialmente essencial”.

A cross reference to classic philosophy and fictional texts to different types of humour in an attempt to define the boundaries of this term.

I can’t remember anything about the book, it is a reference spaghetti with no real point.

An incredibly readable summary of most of the major literary schools with a distinct Marxist bent.

Decent summary of some strands of Marxist thought about literature. The last chapter, which is detailed and primarily about Brecht, is fascinating. Suffers from its length and its refusal to define what Marxist literary criticism *is* - it doesn't talk about anything past the Second World War, leaving a pretty huge gap. Refers often to what Marx/Engels/Lenin/Trotsky thought but doesn't really describe the details much at all. What he does describe leaves their thoughts sounding pretty basic - what I got from it is mostly "they thought literature should expose contradictions in society", but it's hedged with a lot of "but"s that don't really pin it down. This isn't to say it's not interesting or even good, but I don't feel much better informed about Marxist criticism in general, outside of the excellent stuff about Brecht's ideas.… (mere)
