What do Marxist critics do?

Separately analyse covert and overt content of literary work, linking covert subject matter to basic Marxist themes (e.g. class struggle) and the underlying message the literary work is therefore giving us

Relate the context of a work to the social class of the author (assuming that he/she is unaware of precisely what is being revealed in the text)

Explain the nature of a whole literary genre in terms of the social period which ‘produced it’ e.g. The Great Gatsby in relation to the booming 20’s, the crazy party lifestyle and the underworld of high society within the US at the time

Method known as cultural materialism where the literary work is related to the social assumptions of the time in which it was received

‘Politicisation of literary form’ claims that literary pieces are determined by political circumstances (e.g. Orwell’s 1984)
