Gramsci: prison notebooks Among those arrested was Antonio Gramsci

Gramsci: prison notebooks. From references in the Notebooks and in Gramsci's letters from prison it is possible to obtain some indication of how Gramsci intended his work to be understood. Soon after his arrest he wrote to his sister-in-law Tatiana (19 March 1927: LC. pp. 57-60) about a project of writing something "fur ewig" (for ever), something which would also serve to absorb him and "give a focus to inner life". Among those arrested was Antonio Gramsci. Gramsci was a member of parliament - but the regime was no longer interested in niceties about parliamentary immunity.

"Letters from Prison, volume I" is an excellent introduction to Gramsci and his thought. For anyone who has read "Prison Letters of George Jackson", will find this volume bringing those letters back to consciousness. Gramsci, like George Jackson, or vice versa, takes the lemon of life and begins to make lemonade. These writings reveal a man who understood the importance of what he was doing. His singleness of purpose despite overwhelming odds,(he was hunchbacked, had a crooked spine, was only 5 feet tall, and imprisoned for political reasons by Mussolini)is enough to make anyone question themself.
In one vignette, another prisoner meets Gramsci for the first time. The prisoner says, You are Antonio Gramsci?" Gramsci answers, "yes, I am Antonio Gramsci". The prisoner responds, "I had pictured Gramsci as a giant of a man!" And a giant he was!
Must reading for anyone interested in Gramsci, politics, history, Italian history, and Dante. Gramsci was a devotee of Dante's inferno and Machiavelli. He will give the reader a whole new outlook on "The Prince".
Read this combined with "Prison Notebooks" and "Cultural Writings" and the you will find yourself quoting Gramsci.

One of the Neo-Marxist classics which got squeezed out and forgotten when the world got taken up with Keynesianism, welfare,the New Right, New Labour type phenomena and finally Islamism. If nothing else thinking youth (or thinking anyone else) should revisit Gramsci as a psychological and moral critique of consumerist capitalism. The "hegemony" idea has become truer, not less true, since he died in 1935.
