Richard Greeman on Victor Serge’s Russian Heritage

Myth and History: Victor Serge’s Russian Heritage
A public lecture by Richard Greeman, Serge biographer and translator
This inaugural lecture is designed as an introduction to the reading of Serge’s Memoirs of a Revolutionary, the complete English translation of which has just been published by NYRB. The talk, based on research in Russian archives, situates Serge in the 19th Russian revolutionary tradition and reveals hitherto unknown aspects of his family background.
The second lecture, Victor Serge and the Novel of the Revolution, will take place the following Saturday.
Sponsored by NYRB Classics, Haymarket Books, and the Brecht Forum.
