Red Rosa: A Graphic Biography of Rosa Luxemburg

by Kate Evans, edited by Paul Buhle
£11.99   paperback  Verso Books (2015)

Red Rosa: A Graphic Biography of Rosa Luxemburg by Kate Evans, edited by Paul Buhle A graphic novel of the dramatic life and death of German revolutionary Rosa Luxemburg.
 
A giant of the political left, Rosa Luxemburg is one of the foremost minds in the canon of revolutionary socialist thought. But she was much more than just a thinker. She made herself heard in a world inimical to the voices of strong-willed women. She overcame physical infirmity and the prejudice she faced as a Jew to become an active revolutionary whose philosophy enriched every corner of an incredibly productive and creative life — her many friendships, her sexual intimacies, and her love of science, nature and art.
 
Always opposed to the First World War, when others on the German left were swept up on a tide of nationalism, she was imprisoned and murdered in 1919 fighting for a revolution she knew to be doomed.
 
In this beautifully drawn work of graphic biography, writer and artist Kate Evans has opened up her subject’s intellectual world to a new audience, grounding Luxemburg’s ideas in the realities of an inspirational and deeply affecting life.
