The Letters Of Rosa Luxemburg
The Letters Of Rosa Luxemburg | Rosa Luxemburg
20 posts | 1 read | 6 to read
The most comprehensive collection of letters by Rosa Luxemburg ever published in English, this book includes 190 letters written to leading figures in the European and international labor and socialist movementsLeo Jogiches, Karl Kautsky, Clara Zetkin and Karl Liebknechtwho were among her closest friends, lovers and colleagues. Much of this correspondence appears for the first time in English translation; all of it helps to illuminate the inner life of this iconic revolutionary, who was at once an economic and social theorist, a political activist and a lyrical stylist. Her political concerns are revealed alongside her personal struggles within a socialist movement that was often hostile to independently minded women. This collection will provide readers with a newer and deeper appreciation of Luxemburg as a writer and historical figure. From the Trade Paperback edition.

This is a really interesting read and a very human insight into a great historical figure. I have to admit that the economic theorising went over my head, but it's quite amusing reading the love letters written by a world renowned economist. It's quite moving to see her love of nature and literature and her general optimism coming through in her letters from prison.

December 24th, 1917. Horribly prophetic.
