When railway signalman Harry Price suddenly suffers a stroke his son Matthew a lecturer in London makes a return to the border village of Glynmawr As Matthew and Harry struggle with their memories of personal and social change a beautiful and moving portrait of the love between a father and son emerges, This book extends the theme of Raymond Williams s earlier work in literary and cultural analysis He analyzes previous contributions to a Marxist theory of literature from Marx himself to Lukacs Althusser and Goldmann and develops his own approach by outlining a theory of cultural materialism which integrates Marxist theories of language with Marxist theories of literature br Williams moves from a review of the growth of the concepts of literature and idealogy to a redefinition of determinism and hegemony His incisive discussion of the social material process of cultural activity culminates in a re examination of the problems of alignment and commitment and of the creative practice in individual authors and wider social groups br, em Modern Tragedy em is a study of the ideas and ideologies which have influenced the production and analysis of tragedy, A comprehensive introduction to the work of one of the outstanding intellectuals of the twentieth century br br Raymond Williams is a towering presence in cultural studies most importantly as the founder of the approach that has come to be known as cultural materialism Yet Williams s method was always open ended and fluid and this volume collects together his most significant work from over a twenty year period in which he wrestled with the concepts of materialism and culture and their interrelationship Aside from his more directly theoretical texts however case studies of theatrical naturalism the Bloomsbury group advertising science fiction and the Welsh novel are also included as illustrations of the method at work Finally Williams s identity as an active socialist rather than simply br an academic is captured by two unambiguously political pieces on the past present and future of Marxism
