T.A. Jackson, Marxist Outsider

In relation to the radical political groupings of his time, the British Marxist T.A. Jackson occupied the position of an outsider. So asserts Philip Bounds, who finds Jackson’s inability to conform not only refreshing but of immense value to the revolutionary project. Bounds also discusses Jackson’s understanding of the political views of Dickens and Shakespeare.

    A genuinely interesting dialogue and so articulately expressed. Mr. Bounds you have eloquently described someone so important in British politics who could have easily been forgotten. An excellent discussion.

    Thank you
