By Antonio Negri
The hard work of Job used to be first released in Italy in 1990. Negri all started writing it within the early Eighties, whereas he used to be a political prisoner in Italy, and it used to be the 1st e-book he accomplished in the course of his exile in France (1983–97). As he writes within the preface, knowing soreness used to be for him within the early Eighties “an crucial component of resistance. . . . It was once the matter of liberation, in felony and in exile, from in the absoluteness of Power.” Negri offers a Marxist interpretation of Job’s tale. He describes it as a parable of human exertions, one who illustrates the impossibility of platforms of degree, no matter if of divine justice (in Job’s case) or the price of work (in the case of late-twentieth-century Marxism). within the foreword, Michael Hardt elaborates in this interpretation. In his statement, Roland Boer considers Negri’s analyzing of the booklet of activity with regards to the Bible and biblical exegesis. The hard work of Job offers an interesting and available access into the idea of 1 of today’s most crucial political philosophers.
