Formalism and Marxism : First Edition
This classic text still offers the best available starting point for those new to the field of Marxist criticism, as well as representing a crucial intervention in twentieth-century literary theory.Russian Formalism and Marxist criticism had a seismic impact on twentieth-century literary theory. First published in 1979, Tony Bennett's Formalism and Marxism offered a ground-breaking new interpretation of the Formalists' achievements and demanded a new way forward in Marxist criticism.Placing the work of key figures in context and addressing such issues as aesthetics, linguistics and the category of literature, form and function or literary evolution, Bennett argues that the Formalists' concerns provided the basis for a radically historical approach to the study of literature. Addressing such crucial questions as 'What is literature?' or 'How should it be studied and to what end?', Formalism and Marxism explores ideas which should be considered by any student or reader of literature and provides a particular challenge to those interested in Marxist criticism. This classic text still offers the best available starting point for those new to the field, as well as representing a crucial intervention in twentieth-century literary theory.
