A Literature for Politics is dedicated to a different set of possibilities- the possibilities of political engagement. In this, however, we are also dedicated to a different understanding of what constitutes political literature.
One of the most pervasive commonplaces of the twentieth century is that literature and politics don't mix. For example, leftist politics- with its dogmatism, its inflexibility, and its often simple notions of social change- goes against the predominant romantic notion of the artist.
