Chapter Summary

Benedetto Croce's judgement of the original thematically organised edition of Gramsci's Prison Notebooks has only been amplified since the publication of the critical edition edited by Valentino Gerratana in 1975. Most significantly, the philologically rigorous work of the MEGA has revealed a hitherto not fully recognised incompletion in a stronger sense: many of the 'canonical' texts of Marxism. The first extended engagement within Anglophone Marxism with Gerratana's critical edition, Perry Anderson's 'The Antinomies of Antonio Gramsci', aimed to combat this travesty of Gramsci's legacy. A further progressive transformation of the concept of hegemony in the Prison Notebooks was noted, occurring in three stages. Nevertheless, Anderson proceeded to analyse the different formulations of such a generic theory of hegemony applied to 'the structures of bourgeois power in the West', in terms of the 'three distinct versions of the relations between Gramsci's key concepts'.

Keywords: Antonio Gramsci; Benedetto Croce; concept of hegemony; Marxism; Perry Anderson
