Raymond Williams has made a central contribution to the culture of the Left in the English-speaking world. Politics and Letters is a volume of interviews with Williams, conducted by members of the New Left Review editorial committee, that is designed to bring into clear focus the major theoretical and political issues posed by his work. Ranging across his biographical development, the evolution of his cultural theory and literary criticism, his work on dramatic forms and his fiction, the volume concludes with an exploration of Williams's positions on British and international politics.


Raymond Williams (1921-1988) was for many years Professor of Drama at the University of Cambridge. Among his many books are "Culture and Society," "Culture and Materialism, Politics and Letters," "Problems in Materialism and Culture," and several novels.
