Although Rosa Luxemburg’s writings on cultural questions are marginal in comparison to those on economics and politics, creative literature and the arts more broadly occupy a significant location in her life’s work. Both her formal contributions to literary criticism, and the prolific literary allusions and references in her letters—published in English in Verso’s Letters of Rosa Luxemburg—are indicative of her distinctive approach to Marxist cultural theory.
