Marxism and Literature: Reprint

F. O. Matthiessen

Abstract


The only portion of the indictment where my testimony could have any relevance would be in relation to the teaching of "the principles of Marxism-Leninism" through books and classes. In that connection two points should be made: (1) that these "principles" are very different from what the indictment implies, and (2) that no "principles" can be stamped out by suppression, and that it is against the whole American tradition of freedom of thought and expression even to attempt such suppression. The second of these points has already been well argued by the Civil Liberties Union, so I shall confine my remarks here to the first.
