MARXSIGHT.ORG is a collection of critical essays. Although criticism is by its nature parasitic on art, the good critic is a useful parasite, one who performs two services for the reader. He\she sifts the work worth considering from that which is not, and helps us to appreciate it.
If the critic has performed these services, his job is complete. But occasionally he goes a step further and creates a minor work of art, himself.
In the following, I am confident that the texts I have selected are masterpieces. So my sole aim has been to help the reader to appreciate them.
