The Italian name
for the work we Anglophones know as Antonio Gramsci's Prison Notebooks.
The notebooks themselves were written between 1929 and 1935. They were
first published in six volumes between 1948 and 1951 by Einaudi in Turin,
the publisher also responsible for the authoritative critical edition
in four volumes by Valentino Gerratana in 1975. Most English readers
rely on the Selections from the Prison Notebooks, edited by Geoffrey
Nowell Smith and Quintin Hoare, and published by Lawrence & Wishart
and the International Publishers in 1971. Columbia University Press
is currently working on an English critical edition, and two volumes
have already been published. The Dictionary of the Turtle holds
the notebooks and their author in high regard, as is evident from our
entries on Caesarism, the Dual
Perspective, Optimism and the
