Sumario:This essay analyzes the metaphors included in a chapter of Capital, "The Secret of Primitive Accumulation", by Karl Marx, in order to review the aesthetical, ethic, epistemological and political tensions in the text. By linking the Marxian imagination mainly to some gothic literature, we will also follow a genealogy of studies about Marxian metaphors that ends with the feminist criticism by Silvia Federici’s Caliban and the Witch.
