Wilsons Marxism and Literature published in 1938, is his study of the origins of socialism. It celebrates Marxisms ability to throw a great deal of light on the origins and social significance of works of art, but attacks the belief then advocated by that good literature can be made from ideological formulas. This article aims at how his essay Marxism and Literature attempts at an evaluation of the impact of Marxism on art and literature and literary criticism.
