Marxist Literary TheoryDescription: Marxist literary theory examines the relationship between literature and socioeconomic conditions. It explores how literature reflects and critiques the power dynamics, class struggles, and ideologies within society. Drawing from Karl Marx's ideas, this approach emphasizes the role of literature in shaping and challenging dominant narratives, exposing social inequalities, and advocating for revolutionary change. By analyzing texts through a Marxist lens, this theory seeks to uncover hidden meanings and uncover the underlying sociopolitical forces at play.
