"A New York Review Books Original Victor Serge is one of the great men of the twentieth century: anarchist, revolutionary, agitator, theoretician, historian of his times, and a fearless truthteller. Here Serge describes his upbringing in Belgium, the child of a family of exiled Russian revolutionary intellectuals, his early life as an activist, his time in a French prison, the active role he played in the Russian Revolution, as well as his growing dismay at the Revolutionary regime's ever more repressive and murderous character. Expelled from the Soviet Union, Serge went to Paris, and barely escaped the Nazis to find a final refuge in Mexico. Memoirs of a Revolutionary describes a thrilling life on the frontlines of history and includes brilliant portraits of politicians from Trotsky and Lenin and Stalin to major writers like Alexander Blok and Andrey Bely. Above all, it captures the sensibility of Serge himself, that of a courageous and singularly appealing advocate of human liberation who remained undaunted in the most trying of times. Peter Sedgwick's fine translation of Serge's Memoirs of a Revolutionary was cut by a fifth when it was first published in 1963. This new edition is the first in English to present the entirety of Serge's book"--Provided by publisher.

Uneven, mostly because Serge is so good at inhabiting his own past, and so determined to record facts, many of which are related better by others. When those two things come together, it's quite difficult to get on board: here's a long explanation of Bolshevik politics, in which Serge plays a role, and with no obvious reflection. But soon enough he's on the outs with the Bolsheviks, he reflects more, and you start to wish that Lenin had been assassinated after all, and Serge had somehow managed to get himself to the top of the greasy pole. Far superior to all the right-wing 'end of an illusion' books, because Serge matures from an incorrect certainty to an astonishing clarity of mind, rather than 'maturing' from one incorrect certainty to another.

Hijo de exiliados rusos huidos de la tiranía zarista, su infancia de miseria queda simbolizada en la muerte de un hermano por hambre. Pronto su espíritu crítico lo llevará a la militancia, primero en el movimiento obrero belga, luego en el anarquismo francés, por lo que sufre persecución y cárcel. En la Barcelona insurrecta de principios del XX, será amigo de Ascaso, Durruti, Nin, Seguí? Cuando en Rusia se enciende la mecha revolucionaria de 1917, se suma al movimiento. Testigo y protagonista, nos deja incomparables retratos de personajes únicos en la vorágine de la historia: Kropotkin, Lenin, Trotsky, Balabanova, Figner, Zinoviev, y también de otros intelectuales arrastrados por la marea: Gorki, Essenin, Maiakovski, Istrati, Pilniak, Gumilev. Son extraordinarias sus estampas de la España revolucionaria, de Viena y Berlín en ebullición, de las inciertas noches de Moscú y Petrogrado.

Pronto denunciará la degradación del bolchevismo. Su crítica de los atropellos, la represión y los crímenes le deparará el acoso y el Gulag. Sufrió el periplo de un «disidente» ruso: difamación, censura, prisión, deportación y expulsión de la URSS. Jamás claudicó. Para Serge, cada hombre es responsable de sí mismo y del prójimo. Estas memorias son un acto político, además de un monumento literario: con pensamiento diáfano, disecciona las contradicciones del proceso revolucionario y los mecanismos del autoritarismo, también del conformismo individual y colectivo.

Este libro narra el itinerario y el testimonio de un "desidente" ruso, excluido, deportado, rechazado, censurado. Desde el fondo de los años lejanos se eleva, más actual que nunca, la voz de un espíritu libre: el del "hereje" en tiempos de ortodoxias. Esta edición contiene el texto revisado y corregido por Victor Serge antes de su muerte, en México y un prólogo de Jaime Labastida. ( )

"I have outlived three generations of brave men, mistaken as they may have been, to whom I was deeply attached, and whose memory remains dear to me. And here again, I have discovered that it is nearly impossible to live a life devoted wholly to a cause which one believes to be just; a life, that is, where one refuses to separate thought from daily action. The young French and Belgian rebels of my twenties have all perished; my syndicalist comrades of Barcelona in 1917 were nearly all massacred; my comrades and friends of the Russian Revolution are probably all dead E€E any exceptions are only by a miracle. All were brave, all sought a principle of life nobler and juster than that of surrender" the bourgeois order; except perhaps ( )

What a book this is - Serge was the child of exiled Russian Revolutionaries, raised in Belgium; he became an anarchist and went to stir up the revolution in pre-WW1 France (spending most of the war in prison for his troubles). He then went to fight with anarchists in Spain before heading for Russia in 1919 to join the Bolsheviks. He was in the thick of things with the Bolshevik leadership and knew the major players well, before his disagreements with Stalin led to his isolation and eventual arrest, imprisonment in the Lubyanka for four years, and then internal exile to Kazakhstan. Friends abroad helped him be allowed to leave the USSR just in advance of the show trials that did for Zinoviev, Kamenev, Bukharin et al in the 1930s, and he spent time in Belgium and France writing and trying to further the cause of an anti-Stalinist communism before the Nazi invasion chased him down to Marseilles, where he was able to use other foreign contacts to secure passage to Mexico, where he died in exile.

Serge isn't a hero, he remained a committed Marxist to the end and failed to disown the 'good Terror' at the start of the revolution which he manages to divorce from the 'bad terror' that followed it. He also regularly notices that people in capitalist countries live far better than in the USSR, and that even a little bit of free market in Russia is enough to cheer people up and avoid pesky things like famines, without reconsidering whether this communism business is really all that. Nonetheless, he was fully opposed to Stalin and championed individual freedom of thought and conscience when it put his own neck on the line and almost everyone around him crumbled, so there is a lot to be said for him too. This is a ludicrously interesting book, well written (he was also a novelist), and a view of history from a man on the inside of some of the biggest moments of the 20th century. Great stuff. ( )

What a tale! In the first place, Serge is by far the best writer to occupy so high a position in the Bolshevik apparatus. Lunacharsky, onetime Commissar of Culture, of whom they were once so proud, was an amateur and dilettante by comparison. Serge was the author of several moving novels, and a man of great humanity and sensitivity. So his book is simply better written than any that might be compared with it...

It could be called an orgy of name dropping — Stalin drops the names into the cork-lined cellars, and Serge records them, on and on, the roster of the Revolution. Generals, poets, professional assassins, agents and double and triple agents, scientists, scholars, artists, beautiful girls and bewhiskered cranks — we all know the story, but Serge knew the people. They come alive, seen not with Trotsky’s epigrammatic malice, but with pity and understanding, and then they die, and Serge feels each death himself.

Memoirs is a document that is essential, above all, as a denouncement of oppression, an eye-witness account, written in heat and at speed, but with the talent of the true writer, of what it was like to be at the heart of the machine – and to stand up to it.

Even before I emerged from childhood, I seem to have experienced, deeply at heart, that paradoxical feeling which was to dominate me all through the first part of my life: that of living in a world without any possible escape, in which there was nothing for it but to fight for an impossible escape.
