The Present of the title is a complex historical situation, not a point in time and space. The topics through which the author explores it include the record and prospects of Marxist literary theory, the ethics and politics of European and U.S. intelligentsia, the social dynamics of English literary and cultural studies, and the debates within Socialist thought at the dawn of a new millennium.
