Antonio Gramsci: Selections from Cultural Writings Paperback / softback
Edited by David Forgacs, Geoffrey Nowell-Smith
Gramsci's writings on culture have been hugely influential for western critical thinking during the last forty years.
This volume brings together a wealth of these writings, ranging from appreciations of theatre, literature and other forms of artistic production to notes that break new ground in cultural theory.
Gramsci was interested in both popular and high-art culture, and the writings in this selection include his reflections on Futurism as well as the detective novel, on linguistics and journalism, on 'national-popular' culture and folklore.
The volume's extensive introductory material and explanatory notes offer useful background information on the wider context of Gramsci's work.
