University of North Carolina Press

This book discusses several generations of Communist writers committed to the 1930s vision of advancing a new society. This introduction considers the problematical meanings for literature of the prevailing political strategy of the pro-Communist Left. It describes the enigma of the evolving meaning of “antifascism,” which is captured in Howard Fast's “An Epitaph for Sidney.”

Keywords:   Communist writers, pro-Communist Left, antifascism, Howard Fast, Epitaph for Sidney
