Karl Marx in London – Walkers of the World Unite!
|2 May 2020
Tour du Jour
Short read: MARCHING, MARKING, MARX’S LONDON!
Long read: Forward comrades! Through the barriers and into the barrios (of the past) thanks to the stories and many of the Marx sites (and sights!) in London, ending at the magnificent British Museum Reading Room where the great man wrote the world shaking Das Kapital. So where are we? And when? Well, Soho and Bloomsbury a century and more ago. It was here in London that Marx found – in the the words of a leading German Socialist – what he was looking for: the “bricks and mortar” for his ideas in Das Kapital, which some say could only have been written in the London of his time. A time of booming raw capitalism which promoted the accumulation of great wealth – but into the bargain, the abject misery and poverty of the worker. Created and guided by playwright Richard Roques.
