Summary
"Art, Literature and Culture from a Marxist Perspective provides a historical and dialectical journey through some of the most salient and abiding works of art, literature, TV series and film, including the analysis of more classical forms such as the paintings of Van Gogh or work by Balzac and Bronte, alongside modern elements which are on the cutting edge of contemporary culture - like HBO's Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, The Walking Dead, True Detective, the life and music of Tupac Shakur, the comedy of Ricky Gervais and more. The author demonstrates, with a lucid and literary style, how these works and artists are important more broadly; how they manage to weave into a fantasy fabric the fundamental forms of the historical realities in which we are enmeshed; how each is stamped with that historical necessity.
