Moorcocks Politics from Wikipedia Moorcock’s works are noted for their political nature and content. In one interview, Moorcock states, “I am an anarchist and a pragmatist. My moral/philosophical position is that of an anarchist.” Further, in describing how his writing relates to his political philosophy, Moorcock says, “My books frequently deal with aristocratic heroes, gods and so forth. All of them end on a note which often states quite boldly that one should serve neither gods nor masters but become one’s own master.”
Besides using fiction to explore his politics, Moorcock also engages in political activism. Specifically, in order to “marginalize stuff that works to objectify women and suggests women enjoy being beaten”, Moorcock has encouraged W H Smiths to move John Norman‘s Gor series novels to the top shelf
From Fantastic Fiction In a career that spans more than five decades, Michael Moorcock has done more than any writer to demolish the confines of genre in English Literature. His prodigious output has made an indelible impact on the science fiction of the golden age and the literature of the counter-culture. More recently his work has radically revised the London of our shared experience and created startling new readings in the history of the last century. Now Moorcock introduces an anthology of breathtaking scope and ambition iin which he seeks out new connections between the fiction, poetry and journalism that has informed and covertly constructed the imaginative landscape in which we live. From creation of the Yellow Book to the radical feminism of Andrea Dworkin, from teh mars of Edgar Rice to plans for an inland sea in the heart of the Sahara, from the high modernism of the mid-century to Moorcock’s Miscellany is an anthology unlike any before conceived. The Miscellany is both a personal guide to the literature that has inspired one of our greatest writers and a history of our times seen through a study of its unacknowledged legislation.
