What, if any is the relation between literature and politics? This book seeks to demonstrated, from the standpoint of a political militant, that radical aesthetics and radical politics can only be thought in terms of compossibility, not relationality. It contends that literature should be thought, not in terms of the use of art for politics, but in terms of politics in art as its use.

This edition of letters by Antonio Gramsci vividly evokes the ‘great and terrible world’ in which he lived, a description he used a number of times in his correspondence. The letters show Gramsci beginning to form the theoretical concepts that come to fuller fruition in the Prison Notebooks, but they also give an essential and rounded picture of Gramsci’s development, politically, intellectually and emotionally – the latter especially through letters to his family and wife.

Antonio Gramsci’s Notebooks were written between 1929 and 1935, while Gramsci was imprisoned by Mussolini. One of the most original marxist thinkers in twentieth century Europe, Gramsci has had a profound influence on debates about the relationship between politics and culture. His complex and fruitful approach to questions of ideology, power and change remains crucial for critical theory.
