Abstract: One of the political theory ever formulated was The Communist Manifesto by Marx was an epoch-making philosophy that was presented before us; a war of class and materialism. The theory changed the dynamics of the 20th century. Marx gives an account of communism where they visualize a society devoid of class, state, and property that envisaged the theory of capitalism which has a huge impact on the life of million of which the genesis is the modernism. Marx crucial remarks “it is not the consciousness of men that determines their being, but, on the contrary, their social existence that determines their consciousness”. There had been constant conflict between classes when it comes to marginalized. The question arises if there is any aesthetic of the marginalized or the oppressed that lived in the slum area. Not a single play from 1900-1920 was based on the life of marginalized. Marx as a philosopher believes that a human defines himself/herself through his consciousness and that the individual consciousness is not separate from the social group or a class. The consciousness of the social group defines the consciousness of man. Economically it’s between people who are in power and the people who are deprived of it and that money is synonymous with power. The paper discusses how the “marginalized” is an ideological perspective with an extinction of progress and there is a constant conflict of war in both politics and literature when it comes to marginalized.
