L'Internationale

Recommended Posts

This comes from an interest in France with a baggage of previous interests.

I asked myself what is the French national anthem?

And that led to other things I had not known or my knowledge was flawed. I always had this idea that it had something to do with the French revolution but which one.]

Le Marseailleise is the official anthem.

Looking instead at L'Internationale I came adross diverse sites of interest.

Encyclopedia Britannica

Then for some reason I got interested in what the word Soviet means which led to this site

http://www.marxists.org/archive/trotsky/1920/terrcomm/ch05.htm

which happens to give an interesting bit from Trotsky himself that didn't answer it but opened up a lot of other avenues, so I sat back and listened to various versions in order to get some feel for their meaning (now with Trotsaky hovering in my brain). Anyway that was fun so I'll just post a couple of links
