(p.93) Chapter 4 British Visitors to Russia
Modernism, Internationalism and the Russian Revolution

David Ayers

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter deals with the writings of some of the British visitors to Russia, including John Cournos, the modernist writer, who produced an early anti-Bolshevik pamphlet; Robert Wilton, the anti-Semitic correspondent for the Times, and Michael Farbman, correspondent for the Manchester Guardian, who offered highly contrasting early accounts; Bertrand Russell and H.G. Wells, whose accounts were distinguished by the cultural status of their authors, the latter much noted for an interview with Lenin; and Francis McCullagh, the former journalist, now British officer and agent taken prisoner by the Bolsheviks, who offered quite contrasting perspectives to those of the official visitors.

Keywords:   John Cournos, Robert Wilton, Michael Farbman, Bertrand Russell, H. G. Wells, Lenin, Francis McCullagh, Times, Manchester Guardian
