The necessity of art : a Marxist approach by Ernst Fischer( Book )

Soul and form by György Lukács( Book )

12 editions published between 1974 and 2010 in English and German and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

György Lukács was a Hungarian Marxist philosopher, writer, and literary critic who shaped mainstream European Communist thought. Soul and Form was his first book, published in 1910, and it established his reputation, treating questions of linguistic expressivity and literary style in the works of Plato, Kierkegaard, Novalis, Sterne, and others. By isolating the formal techniques these thinkers developed, Lukács laid the groundwork for his later work in Marxist aesthetics, a field that introduced the historical and political implications of text. For this centennial editio
1905 by Leon Trotsky( Book )

15 editions published between 1971 and 2016 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In January of 1905, thousands of Russian workers, led by a priest on the payroll of the Tsar himself, marched to the gates of the Winter Palace with the intention of humbly petitioning their ruler for an eight hour work day. They were met by an intransigent detachment of royal guards who opened fire, killing hundreds of demonstrators. This massacre was the spark that set off an uprising that would shake the Russian Empire to its very foundation before the year's end. At the very center of this movement stood the newly created Soviet of Workers Deputies. Formed to coordinate the wave of mass strikes that stretched from St. Petersburg to Warsaw, this council became the de-facto voice of Russia's revolutionary workers, who chose Leon Trotsky as their elected leader. 1905 is Leon Trotsky's account of these events. With his characteristic combination of elegant, beautifully written narrative and incisive, insightful analysis, Trotsky's book-despite long being out of print-has remained the central point of reference for those looking to understand the rising of workers, peasants, and soldiers that would later become known as the Great Dress Rehearsal.' Originally written in 1908 for revolutionaries in and outside of Russia to better understand the dynamics and forces at play in order to better apply them to their own circumstances, this new edition reclaims these lessons for today's radicals
Sex-pol; essays, 1929-1934 by Wilhelm Reich( Book )

3 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains the first complete translations of Wilhelm Reich's writings from his Marxist period. Reich, who died in 1957, had a career with a single goal: to find ways of relieving human suffering. And the same curiosity and courage that led him from medical school to join the early pioneers of Freudian psychoanalysis, and then to some of the most controversial work of this century--his development of the theory of the orgone--led him also, at one period of his life, to become a radical socialist. The renewed interest in Reich's Marxist writings, and particularly in his notions about sexual and political liberation, follows the radical critiques of Herbert Marcuse, Frantz Fanon and Paul Goodman, the political protest movements toward personal liberation in the present decade
Poems on the theatre by Bertolt Brecht( Book )

6 editions published between 1961 and 1964 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The necessity of art by Ernst Fischer( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reissued with an introduction by John Berger, The Necessity of Art is a beautifully written meditation on arts importance in viewing the world in which we live. In this wide-ranging and erudite exploration of literary and fine art, Fischer looks at the relationship between art and social reality, arguing that truthful art must both reflect reality in all its flaws and imperfections, and help show how change and improvement might be brought about. With his emphasis on the individuals need to engage with society, his rejection of rampant consumerism and hypertechnology, and his emphasis on hope, this radical, affirmative and humane vision of the artistic endeavor remains as timely today as when it was first published sixty years ago."--Back cover
Notebook of a return to the native land by Aimé Césaire( Book )

6 editions published between 1969 and 2014 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aime Cesaire is most well known as the co-creator (with Leopold Senghor) of the concept of negritude. His long poem Notebook of a Return to the Native Land, written at the end of World War II, is a masterpiece of immense cultural significance and beauty and became an anthem of Blacks around the world. Clayton Eshleman and Annette Smith achieve a laudable adaptation of Cesaire's work to English by clarifying double meanings, stretching syntax, and finding equivalent English puns, all while remaining remarkably true to the French text. Andre Breton's introduction, "A Great Black Poet," situates the text and provides a moving tribute to Cesaire."--Jacket
The theory of the novel; a historico-philosophical essay on the forms of great epic literature by György Lukács( Book )

13 editions published between 1971 and 2003 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Georg Lukács wrote The Theory of the Novel in 1914-1915, a period that also saw the conception of Rosa Luxemburg's Spartacus Letters, Lenin's Imperialism: The Highest Stage of Capitalism, Spengler's Decline of the West, and Ernst Bloch's Spirit of Utopia. Like many of Lukács's early essays, it is a radical critique of bourgeois culture and stems from a specific Central European philosophy of life and tradition of dialectical idealism whose originators include Kant, Hegel, Novalis, Marx, Kierkegaard, Simmel, Weber, and Husserl. The Theory of the Novel marks the transition of the Hungarian philosopher from Kant to Hegel and was Lukács's last great work before he turned to Marxism-Leninism. -- Book Description
