(en) France, Alternative Libertaire #224 - Read: Victor Serge: Notebooks (1936-1947) (fr) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 02 Mar 2013 11:20:35 +0200

Coming from a family of anti-tsarist terrorists, anarchists imprisoned in France and fighting in Barcelona, ââlibertarian anarchists hated for his joining the Bolshevik party in full Russian Revolution, activist apparatus of the Third International Trotskyism imprisoned by Stalin quarantined by the Trotskyist sects when he argues that no Fourth International can not be created without some seriously established national parties, Victor Serge remains unclassifiable until his last breath. He remained in search of a revolution to which he devoted his life and his memoirs and several novels worn by a real blast and authentic literary qualities. Probably do not know him but he is undoubtedly one of the first "libertarian communists", trying to bet unlikely to experience the best traditions of Marxist and anarchist, hot in the stream of history that is built. When any error pays cash.

The books published this winter, testimony to the vibrancy and moral rigor and intellectual activist in the twilight of his life. Largely unpublished, they cover the period 1936-1947 his exile in Mexico and the United States where he died in 1947. The daily succession of artistic considerations, attempts to forecast geopolitical war and post-war tourist descriptions, always sharp reflections on the news, the echoes of his activism in exile. And on the occasion of any death, not always natural, portrait dozens of revolutionary leaders of all nationalities, he had the opportunity to attend. Emerges a universe full of activists clash but where the masses are scarce, leaving each other for their mistakes or their crimes.

You can read those thick books as a blog yesterday or a dictionary of digging here and there. One way to soak up the hopes and despairs of violence forged in the furnace of revolutions of the short twentieth century, an introduction without a cumbersome manual. For those already familiar with the subject, we find here a thousand details, details, characters, sensations experienced, personal perspectives that enrich deep reflection. Christmas is a year, buy the book immediately!
