Lenin's short essay, "Three Sources and Three Component Parts of Marxism," has a wide popular readership and reputation, but is relatively neglected by commentators. Lenin's writing effects a rhetoric of enlightenment, presenting Marxism as an integral and comprehensive doctrine. A close analysis uncovers the metaphorics of Lenin's presentation of Marxism. Competing conceptions of enlightenment underpin what Lenin identifies as the "three component parts" of Marxism.
