Abstract
The present paper seeks to explore various dimensions of Marxist criticism prevailing in contemporary theory. It deals with basic tenets of communism in a concise manner. Thereon it attempts to understand the new and varied aspects of critical theory which blend Marxism with other valid findings of different schools of literary theory only to arrive at the larger picture of literature and its relevance to human life. Thus, the argument has been built that the relevance of Marxism has not diminished through the history only it has become more eclectic in scope by benefitting from other theoretical persuasions of literary criticism.
Keywords
