New edition of Yvonne Kapp's much-celebrated biography
Eleanor Marx is one of the most tragically overlooked feminists intellectuals in history. To the extent that she is known, interest in her is often limited to her proximity to Karl Marx, her father. But not only did she edit, translate, transcribe and collaborate with him, she also spent her extraordinary life putting his ideas into practice as a labour organizer and radical.
This highly acclaimed biography brilliantly succeeds in capturing Eleanor's spirit, from a lively child, opining on the world's affairs, to the new woman, aspiring to the stage, earning her living as a free intellectual, and helping to lead England's unskilled workers at the height of the new unionism; being always more than, yet at the same time inescapably, Karl Marx's daughter. It is also, inevitably, an unrivalled biography of the Marx household in Victorian London, of the Marx circle, and of Friedrich Engels, the family's extraordinary mentor.
Eleanor's biography appeared first at the height of feminist organizing, and does so again in this single-volume edition as the interest in feminism resurges, as a crucial corrective to a narrative that puts feminists and marxists on opposing sides of radical history.
