Even theAmerican history Dictionary acknowledges that F. Scott Fitzgerald “epitomized the Jazz Age. ” And nowhere between his writings are the gin, pith, and morning-after squint of that period higher illuminated than in those brief essays. chosen in occasion of the a centesimal anniversary of Fitzgerald's delivery, those candid own memoirs––one written together with his spouse, Zelda––furnish not anything below the autobiography of "the misplaced generation" of the Nineteen Twenties.

36 Indeed, anyone who returns to the early manuscripts and beyond them to the published essays of the early 1840s will be astonished by the radical difference in political content: these are fiery works which denounce capitalism and vividly expound the state of the working class (newly discovered and named the "proletariat"). These "early" works, which culminate in that truly political text, the Manifesto, talk social revolution in a way utterly alien to the "mature" texts: and the lapse of the concept and the term "alienation" into its bland and purely legal sense of title and ownership in the latter is a signal of the transformation.
This witty construction of a "religious" base and superstructure on a global scale is also not without its relevance for the exploration of other social levels, however technically irrelevant to the study of capitalism. The Critique also gives us an insight into the texture of Part One of Capital (Volume One) as a palimpsest, on whose successive surcharges the whole sequence of Marx s economic speculations since the 1844 manuscripts is inscribed and then effaced. This process not only accounts for the outbursts of figuration as Marx begins to touch the outer limit of what he has over and over again drafted; but also helps us to appreciate the destiny of its more purely philosophical beginnings in the theory of alienation, a theory which does not, as we shall see later on, disappear along with its abstract language from the final text, but is rather progressively materialized and realized 32 See the pathbreaking studies by William Pietz, "The Problem of the Fetish," in three parts: Res 9 (1985), Res 13 (1987), Res 16 (1988).
The fourfold enumeration of such societies (169—72), the sole echo of the groundbreaking speculations of the Grundrisse on pre-capitalist societies (471-514), in fact falls outside the framework Capital'has set for itself, which is the analysis of a single mode of production, the one from which all these other societies are distinguished. "Let us imagine," says Marx; but as we shall see he will in the main body of Capital reach the heart of the matter—collective production— THE PLAY OF CATEGORIES 45 in a different and far more tortuous way Still, this is the crucial moment for anyone wishing to find a political lesson in Capital and to encounter a call for revolution in the sense of an utter transformation or replacement of the capitalist mode of production as such.
