Karl Marx was a great man. In other words, he had a huge impact on the world. Many, as seen above, have written biographies. I try to give the original year of publication. I am inconsistent about whether or not I translate the title.

Early biographies tend to be memoirs, based on recollections and oral stories, with little documentation. Later, biographies tend to be more intellectual histories. I have read the Mehring biography and the Lafarge memoir. Most of what I have read about his life were in studies of his thought, that are not included above. Examples include Shlomo Avineri, Ernest Mandel, and Takahisi Oishi. Some around the mid twentieth century focus on being pro or against the Soviet Union. The last couple of decades have seen academic works with lots of documentation.
