These essays are contributions towards a communism of writing. They are attempts to understand revolution and what binds revolutionaries when they choose, in concert, to put their bodies on the line to challenge a force that seems greater than they are....For Shelley, the hegemonic enemy consists of kings, priests and the deities that they worship. In this thesis the relation of a communism of writing to these entities is explored in readings of Laon and Cythna and Prometheus Unbound.
