Besides the long, devoted marriage to Jenny, there is another love story here: the partnership with Engels, who it seems was prepared to do anything for his comrade. Engels famously subsidized Marx; perhaps less well known is that he spared his friend a scandal by claiming paternity of the child born to the Marx family servant, Lenchen Demuth: the boy was in fact Karl’s son. After the great man’s death, it was Engels who waded through Marx’s scrawled notes to assemble, and publish posthumously, the final two volumes of “Das Kapital.” Even Marx’s signature text, “The Communist Manifesto,” included a 10-point program lifted almost verbatim from an earlier Engels program.
在馬克思去世之後，是恩格斯耗費心力，從馬克思潦草的筆記中整理出《資本論》(Das Kapital)最後兩卷並出版發行。即便是馬克思最著名的作品，《共產黨宣言》(Communist Manifesto)，其中提出的10項措施也幾乎是逐字引用了恩格斯先前提出的東西。馬克思有濃重的萊茵蘭口音，還有點口齒不清，恩格斯之於馬克思就如 同亞倫(Aaron)之於摩西(Moses)，可以在眾人面前講話，彌補搭檔的不足。恩格斯的忠誠甚至達到了這種地步：他採取“托兒”手法，在德國媒體上 發表了《資本論》的匿名評論。你可以想像一下，這對搭檔在亞馬遜時代可以玩出一些什麼花樣。
