I browsed these lovely 3 volumes in the store last evening as a winter storm was gathering- does anyone have anything to say re: are these big things worth my time? They look so enchanting...

I read all three volumes and I don't regret a single second I spent reading Gramsci. This edition promised to be one of the best foreign language versions of the Notebooks (in addition to Italian, complete translations are available in French, German, Spanish). It's a pity it ground to a halt after Notebook 8.

زندگی یک مبارز واقعی در زندان که سعی داره با مکاتبه ارتباطش رو با دنیای بیرون، با مادر، برادر، دوست، همسر و کودکانش حفظ کنه...با خوندن این کتاب تونستم ذره ای با مبارزین زندانی همذات پنداری داشته باشم و احساسشون رو نسبت به بیرون و آدماش حس کنم...

I plan to spend much of the Spring and most of the summer of 2011 studying these volumes.

Más de cien años después, la noción de lo nacional-popular de Antonio Gramsci fue concebida comoparte de un esfuerzo para recuperar la operación de clase hegemónica al servicio del proletariado. Para Gramsci, los nacional-popular es la rúbrica bajo la cual los intelectuales podrían unirse con el pueblo, y por ello, un recurso poderoso para la construcción de una hegemonía popular.

Imperio Pág. 83

Discutido también en Gramsci para principiantes.
