Georgy Plekhanov declined to publish Marx’s letter to Zasulich, presumably on the grounds that it was not sufficiently Marxist. 72 Marx became more responsive to populist ideas at the very moment when Plekhanov and his associates, in the name of Marxism, were parodying populist writers as reactionary utopians.
