The story of a modern radical who took seriously the idea that inner liberation is the first business of social revolution. Her politics, from beginning to end, was based on resistance to that which thwarted the free development of the inner self. The right to stay alive in one's senses, to enjoy freedom of thought and speech, to reject the arbitrary use of power--these were key demands in the many public protest movements she helped mount. Anarchist par excellence, Goldman is one of the memorable political figures of our time, not because of her gift for theory or analysis or even strategy, but because some extraordinary force of life in her burned, without rest or respite, on behalf of human integrity--and she was able to make the thousands of people who, for decades on end, flocked to her lectures, feel intimately connected to the pain inherent in the abuse of that integrity. --From publisher description.… (mais)

I just don't think I'm ever going to finish this. There may be another biography of Emma that interests me. But, this is a textbook and dry as dust. Even the woman who said that any revolution that didn't include dancing isn't for her is dull in this brick. ( )

Vivian Gornick is the perfect writer to explain the complicated person that was Emma Goldman. It is a very timely story right now with all the protests and Antifa's participation in those events. Gornick explains the difference between anarchism of collective living and anarchism of the individual. Emma Goldman was concerned about the liberation of the individual. She was influenced by German philosophers of individualism as well as Freud's theories concerning sexual repression. Yet, she was not a feminist. The book emphasizes the press' portrayal of her which reflected the sexism of the time period such as focusing on her physical appearance or what she was wearing that day. Ironically that is not what influenced people, it was tenacity in the face of what she believed was right and her fearlessness in speaking out. She was an eloquent orator and dramatic when women were supposed to kept in their place. She was "woke" before the world knew what to do with her. ( )

like the other reviewer. i don't think gornick liked goldman. i really enjoyed her autobiography and loved her joy of life. she did seem to capture gold man's distress in later life when no one was interested in anarchy. ( )

This brief discussion of Goldman and her time does not exactly qualify as a biography. Reading Wikipedia to gain more knowledge of Emma Goldman helps to add needed background. In addition, Vivian Gornick praises Goldman's "extraordinary force of life" rather than Goldman's skills as a speaker or as an interpreter of ideas. I feel that such praise is somewhat insulting. Would Gornick praise a man for his burning spiritual forcefulness? Overall, the biography focuses more on Gornick's ambivalent feelings toward her subject -- or perhaps her disdain for her subject -- than on a description of Goldman's accomplishments or her life history.
