In 2010, three cardboard boxes of Victor Serge’s papers were discovered in the archive of his late widow, Laurette Séjourné, in Amecameca, Mexico. They included letters, drafts, photographs, and a bundle of exercise books, covering the years 1941, 1942, 1943 and 1946. These have been published in French as Victor Serge, Carnets (1936-1947) and further reveal the confluence of concerns he had with both space and time. These are not yet available in English but New Left Review have produced a selection teasing out aspects of these concerns collected under the title ‘Mexican Notebooks’, covering his journey to, and time in, Mexico between 1941 and 1947. What might this snippet offer in understanding this forgotten Marxist and how might it be related to some of Victor Serge’s wider writings?
