A key essay in the volume Les années 10, Nathalie Quintane's "Why Doesn't the Radical Left Read Literature?" assesses the political potential of contemporary literature to reach the public. This translation brings Quintane's questioning of literature's capacities and relevancy to the radical left into English. Blending theoretical and literary prose, Quintane offers ways to think through modes of poetic action that would act "for real" in our epoch.
