“What this remarkable book does . . . is to remind us of that passion, that revolutionary fervor, that camaraderie, that persistence in the face of political defeat and personal despair so needed in our time as in theirs.” —Howard Zinn “Fascinating ...With marvelous clarity and depth, Candace Falk illuminates for us an Emma Goldman shaped by her time yet presaging in her life the situation and conflicts of women in our time.” —Tillie Olsen One of the most famous political activists of all time, Emma Goldman was also infamous for her radical anarchist views and her “scandalous” personal life. In public, Goldman was a firebrand, confidently agitating for labor reform, anarchism, birth control, and women’s independence. But behind closed doors she was more vulnerable, especially when it came to the love of her life. Reissued on the sesquicentennial of Emma Goldman's birth, Love, Anarchy, & Emma Goldman is an account of Goldman’s legendary career as a political activist. But it is more than that—it is the only biography of Emma Goldman. The flow of her life and words is at its core. Here, Candace Falk offers an intimate look at how Goldman’s passion for social reform dovetailed with her passion for one man: Chicago activist, hobo king, and red-light district gynecologist Ben Reitman. This takes us into the heart of their tumultuous love affair, finding that even as Goldman lectured on free love, she confronted her own intense jealousy. As director of the Emma Goldman papers, Falk had access to over 40,000 writings by Goldman—including her private letters and notes—and she draws upon these archives to give us a rare insight into this brilliant, complex woman’s thoughts. The result is both a riveting love story and a primer on an exciting, explosive era in American politics and intellectual life.
The poems in this book are poems that have inspired me over the years I have been writing since 1978. This is a way of expressing my feelings in words and thoughts from other people’s experiences as well as my own to explain my ideals. To me a writer is very similar to an artist. The writer focuses in his mind and then visualizes a portrait, where as the artist begins to draw the paintings. Hoping that each line falls into place, like the poet that writes the word down. Much like a puzzle that is pieced together. Then it becomes a beautiful piece of artwork. I feel I have been reaching for the stars and chasing my dreams to bring a little light to shine within your hearts. I now hold the Editor’s choice Award in four separate books. One is titled, “Color of Life”. This is a peace poem on “Honorable Men” Dedicated to our American heroes in the U.S.A. I also wrote a poem about our Savior titled “Undying Rose”. I have another poem “Thorns” in a book “Timeless Voices”. Also I wrote a poem on “Birds” again on first page titled “Immortal Verses”. This book is all about my greatest Author Jesus Christ.
