Love and Capital: Karl and Jenny Marx and the Birth of a Revolution

Mary Gabriel


the most spectacularly reviewed books of 2011, LOVE AND CAPITAL finds the not often glimpsed and heartbreakingly human part of the fellow whose works may redefine the area after his demise. Drawing upon formerly unpublished fabric, acclaimed biographer Mary Gabriel tells the tale of Karl and Jenny Marx's marriage. via it, we see Karl as by no means sooner than: a faithful father and husband, a prankster who enjoyed a celebration, a dreadful procrastinator, freeloader, and guy of untamed enthusiasms-one of which might virtually wreck his marriage. via years of determined fight, Jenny's love for Karl will be confirmed repeatedly as she waited for him to complete his masterpiece, Capital.

An epic narrative that stretches over a long time to recount Karl and Jenny's tale opposed to the backdrop of Europe's 19th Century, LOVE AND CAPITAL is a stunning and magisterial account of romance and revolution-and of 1 of the nice love tales of all time.
