Lawrence & Wishart

This volume includes Gramsci’s writings on both popular and high-art culture: appreciations of theatre, literature and other forms of artistic production and notes that break new ground in cultural theory.  Also included are his reflections on Futurism, the detective novel, linguistics and journalism, and folklore.

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.

‘The edition is nearly immaculate, with lucid introductions between each block of William Boelhower’s fluent translations … Though dense and sometimes intricate, the footnotes never swamp the text.’ — Boyd Tonkin, Literature and History

Selections from Cultural Writings is an immensely rich and provocative book which ought to be required reading for anyone concerned with culture . . . and . . . those working on the interface between culture and politics.’ Cencrastus
