Christian Smith on Shakespeare’s influence on Marx

Karl Marx SketchAs a primer to our forthcoming symposium on Shakespeare and Marx in June (also for the up-coming Shakespeare and Hegel event) have a look at the work of our friend Christian Smith. He has recently published an article on the Shakespearean influence on Marx: Verdammt Metall’: Marx’s use of Shakespeare in his Critique of Exchange-value. Furthermore, below are two of his interviews with David McLellan and Jonathan Bate about the same topic (also Freud).

Christian Smith is currently in Berlin writing his monograph on Shakespeare and Marx, where he has also set up a body work practice (with Annie Barker), the Shakespearingly named Forest of Arden Healing Arts. For more videos and info see his research page.
