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, 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, 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
