A Question about Form

How should a communist write? I don't mean what should a communist write, I mean how; i.e. what form should the writing take? Should a communist write in the first person? Should it be impersonal? 

How did Marx write? What was Marx's form? What was Marx's method, his technique? Should we try to emulate this? Is this just a question of literary form? Or can it be expanded?

Marx was an economic theorist, a scientist, a philosopher, and a journalist.
