open book This book is the Persian translation of Terry Eagleton's book, Marxism and Literary Criticism. In this book, the author analyzes the writings of Marx, Engels, Plekhanov, Trotsky, Lukács, Goldmann, Caudwell, Benjamin, and Brecht. They are seen from four viewpoints central to Marxian thought: the relation of literature to history, the problem of 'form' and 'content' in literature, the question of literature and political commitment, and the importance of production and technology in art. Eagleton shows the part that Marxian criticism has to play in defining the crucial link between literature and historical condition, and in so doing has produced a book that is both constructive and committed.

Terry Eagleton is Thomas Warton Professor of English at Oxford University. His works include Marxist Literary Theory (1996), The Ideology of the Aesthetic (1990), Literary Theory: An Introduction (1983), Walter Benjamin (1981), and Criticism and Ideology (1976).
