Now revised to include new words and updated essays Keywords focuses on the sociology of language demonstrating how the key words we use to understand our society take on new meanings and how these changes reflect the political bent and values of society, em Modern Tragedy em is a study of the ideas and ideologies which have influenced the production and analysis of tragedy, Considered to be the founding father of British cultural theory Williams was concerned throughout his life to apply a materialist and socialist analysis to all forms of culture defined generously and inclusively as structures of feeling In this major work Williams applies himself to the problem of modernism Rejecting stereotypes and simplifications he is especially preoccupied with the ambivalent relationship between revolutionary socialist politics and the artistic avant garde Judiciously assessing the strengths and weaknesses of the modernist project Williams shifts the framework of discussion from merely formal analysis of artistic techniques to one which grounds these cultural expressions in particular social formations Animating the whole book is the question which Williams poses and brings us significantly closer to answering namely what does it mean to develop a cultural analysis that goes beyond the modern and yet avoids the trap of postmodernism s new conformism, 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
