Lines composed on the bicentenary of Bakunin’s birth
May 18, 2014 § Leave a comment
Michael Bakunin slept with his clothes on
Michael Bakunin was a man of action
Whose life story reads like a work of fiction.
I recommend Bakunin: The Creative Passion
By Mark Leier (Seven Stories Press, 2009),
Which is not a motion picture
But if it was one
I’d write the novelisation.
