Six Red Months in Russia by Louise Bryant
Six Red Months in Russia

va.prasad, March 23, 2008

I would like to comment on the article I just read which seeks to sketch the lives of John Reed and Louise Bryant. I saw the film 'Reds' last night and in spite of its lingering hollywoodisation throughout, it stirred me enough to further research the lives of the fascinating couple, the protagonists of the film! I was struck by Louise rather more than John Reed. Louise does come through as a woman fighting to be independent, striving for her own individuality and carve a name for herself through her own work rather than being Mrs.Reed. To that extent I find the article stimulating!
