Aesthetics and Politics

Paperback

Price: $17.95

Overview

An intense and lively debate on literature and art between thinkers who became some of the great figures of twentieth-century philosophy and literature.

With an afterword by Fredric Jameson

No other country and no other period has produced a tradition of major aesthetic debate to compare with that which unfolded in German culture from the 1930s to the 1950s. In Aesthetics and Politics the key texts of the great Marxist controversies over literature and art during these years are assembled in a single volume. They do not form a disparate collection but a continuous, interlinked debate between thinkers who have become giants of twentieth-century intellectual history.

This is vital reading for anyone concerned with the relationship between art and socialism. –John Fowles, Philosophy

They are key texts in the study of modernism, of expressionist drama and of realism, and of many closely related general questions ... It is genuinely an indispensable volume.–Raymond Williams

A volume of Adorno is equivalent to a whole shelf of books on literature.
- Susan Sontag
