Book summary

This classic biography of Karl Marx, complete with Gareth Stedman Jones poignant introduction, is unlike any other account of its subject. Focusing as much on Marxs private life as on his public persona and work, this classic biography looks in detail at his relationship with his mother and father, wife and friends, and includes generous quotations from a wide range of correspondence in addition to virtually every photograph in existence of Marx and his closest associates.

Blumenberg examines Marxs early writing as a schoolboy and his romantic poetry whilst a student, as well as his exchanges with close friend and collaborator Frederick Engels. In these pages are moving accounts of the privations of Marxs poverty-stricken life in London and the tragedies which struck his family, as well as discussions of his intellectual development and political activity.Including virtually every photograph in existence of Marx and his closest associates, and focusing as much on his private life as on his public persona and work, Werner Blumenbergs biography provides an intimate portrait of the making of a complex intellectual the New Yorker dubbed the next most influential thinker.
