“Prawer’s book is a milestone: the first important, very well informed and open, non-marxist study in depth of Marx on literature.”
“Here is a major book on Marx, the imagination of history, and nineteenth-century literary taste, executed with standards of scholarship as rare among Marx’s adherents as among his detractors.”
“By clarifying Marx’s countless allusions not only to the classics of literature but also to more obscure writings, Prawer enhances our understanding and appreciation of Marx’s argument. Since few of us have the remarkable literary range of Marx, Prawer is an invaluable guide through the labyrinth of Marx’s literary metaphor.”
“The detail is fascinating and precise. I have discovered only two sources not noted by Professor Prawer, and fear that even these he knows.”
“A learned, useful and entertaining book.”
“While it is not possible to summarize so richly illustrated a work ... it will no longer be quite so easy for writers on Marx to ignore, glide over, or repress the aesthetic dimension so skillfully evoked by Prawer.”
“A landmark in comparative literature.”
