books StLCUIS POST-DISPATCH 4B Tues., Jan. 22, 1985 Obituaries Congressman Gillis W. Long Dies At 6 1 Book Review Career Of An Anarchist Through Admiring Eyes EMMA GOLDMAN: An Intimate Life By Alice Wexler 281 pages. Pantheon, $19.95 LOVE, ANARCHY, AND EMMA GOLDMAN By Candace Falk, 523 pages Holt. Rinehart and Winston, $25 Reviewed by Joseph Losos ; Emma Goldman attracts the same sort of biographers as Queen Elizabeth I of England. That sounds crazy, but when you think about it there is a simple explanation. Many writers are attracted to very strong women ("lady" does not quite fit the Queen; for Emma it would be an utterly ludicrous appellation) who combine forthright stands on public policy with a proud and glamorous private life. In both cases the heroines did what they wanted to do, and although they minded going to prison (as they both did at times), they would have minded much more giving up their self-control. This understandably appeals most powerfully to women, so it is not surprising that the authors of these ' two biographies are female. It is apparent that they both admire their subject greatly. Alice Wexler remarks that she "found Goldman both admirable and irritating," but it seems to me that with both books the former reaction is paramount It is evident that the authors empathize with this little girl who came to America without knowing any English and, in a few years, became one of the most notable anarchist speakers in the country. Between 1892 and 1919 she spoke on many platforms, before a surprising number of groups (some of them quite respectable), advocating the elimination of the government and the eradication of the capitalist system. In the First World War, when Goldman's ideas moved from the domain of curiosity into the arena of valid struggle, the government agents assigned to report on her classed her as the most dangerously effective radical; During the war she was imprisoned; after the war she was deported to Russia. As anyone who saw t the movie "Reds" knows, she quickly became disillusioned with Soviet society, and she spent her last years in geographic and intellectual limbo. During the Spanish Civil War she became an adviser-mother figure to the Spanish anarchists, but their heyday was notoriously brief. She died in 1949, tough to the very end. Wexler does not go beyond 1919, either embarrassed by Goldman's " opposition to Communism or unhappy with the aimlessness of the last 20 - years of her life. The criticism leveled against anarchists has centered on the charge that they were totally unrealistic. A world without capitalism must be a world with state monopolies, because the third alternative, The Best Sellers Hard Cover from 1. THE SICILIAN, by Mario Puzo.

A credo that appeals to individual violence favors the strong, but anarchism predicts that the meek will inherit the earth. Foes of Emma Goldman told her this all her life, and many conservatives were smugly delighted with her experiences in Russia in fact, it may have motivated her deportation in the first place. Neither Wexler nor Falk come to grips with this issue. By leaving out the last years Wexler can picture a great fighter for freedom in an imperfect America, and let it go at that. Falk is especially reluctant to confront the issue of anarchist support for assassination. Neither writer spends much time on any of Goldman's concrete ideas in the years before 1917, other than birth control. It can be argued that she was not only the earth-mother of world anarchism (the tender role which these authors carefully suggest) but also the earthy grandmother of the PLO. She was controversial in her time, so why not now? Emma Goldman was criticized by her more prudent and bookish colleagues for not merely supporting free love, but for practicing it as well. And with lots of gusto, no less! Both these biographies are greatly indebted to the letters which Candace Falk discovered, letters between Goldman and her raunchy lover, Ben Reitman. These letters preclude these books from ever becoming dry accounts of the life of a political thinker. Emma Goldman, like Queen Elizabeth, has outlasted and probably will long outlast any of the immediate causes for which she struggled. the New York Times (as of Jan. 20) Fiction Joseph Losos is a St Louis banker Compiled From News Services WASHINGTON Rep.
