Antonio Gramsci

Antonio Gramsci (1891-1937) was a leader of the Italian Communist Party; at his trial in 1927 the fascist Public Prosecutor proclaimed that his brain must be stopped from functioning for twenty years. Fortunately, Gramsci's "Notebooks from Prison" ensured he continued to make a significant contribution to Marxist theory from a humanist perspective.
