Salvage Stoppard Tom Coast of Utopia Pt 3

Salvage is the third part of The Coast of Utopia Tom Stoppard's long awaited and monumental trilogy that explores a group of friends who came of age under the Tsarist autocracy of Nicholas I and for whom the term intelligentsia was coined Among them are the ana. Salvage the concluding play in Tom Stoppard s trilogy The Coast of Utopia addresses the concept of liberty In this part Alexander Herzen and his inner circle are Russian exiles living in London England according to Nicholas Ogarev Herzen s best friend is a country where even beggars receive a degree of liberty British policemen unlike Russian policemen are unable to arrest beggars for vagrancy Ogarev also sees England as a country where thousands of people die daily from poverty Ogarev states With all this liberty there s no beggar in France or Russia as destitute as the London poor and with all this poverty no Frenchman or Russian has his liberty guarded like a London beggar Therefore the uestion naturally arises In England are poverty and liberty inseparable This uestion continues when Tsar Alexander II much to Herzen s delight frees the Russian serfs However the serfs believe that the land they worked for now belongs to them and when they come to realize this isn t accurate they will in fact have to pay rent for their plots freedom bears an uncanny resemblance to serfdom Salvage reads as a lament and it explores the tensions between communal and communistic socialism Herzen advocates commercial socialism a system where each household has its own plot In Part II of The Coast of Utopia Herzen witnessed the violence of the European Revolution firsthand and this experience strongly influenced his feelings against aggressive forms of social change At the end of Salvage Herzen tells Ogarev We have to open men s eyes and not tear them out This nonviolent sentiment however is not favored by a growing number of Russians those who eventually become the Bolsheviks Salvage shows the emergence of nihilism and this new generation sees the ideas of Herzen and his contemporaries as tedious sentimental and addicted to nostalgia The Coast of Utopia concludes with Herzen feeling responsible for the impending violence He foresees himself as the future custodian ofa desecrated grave The tomb of course refers to Russia The intelligentsia has been replaced with the nihilists and Herzen s writings will soon be overpowered by violence

Rchist Michael Bakunin who was to challenge Marx for the soul of the masses; Ivan Turgenev author of some of the most enduring works in Russian literature; the brilliant erratic young critic Vissarion Belinsky; and Alexander Herzen a nobleman's son and the firs. I have to admit that I fell into the subconcious trap of reading these plays as though they were The Russian Revolution as told from the eyes of the philosophers in the same way one could write a series of plays about the French revolution as sold from the point of view of Locke or Robespierre Of course this series is much a biographical sketch of Herzen and Bakunin two historical figures whose philosophies are intricately tied with the movement that would become the Russuam Revolution but who didn t actually live to see it happen The truth of this because plainly obvious before the end of the second play and yet still like an idiot I felt this jarring sense of incompleteness at the end of the third play because the action ended when Herzen dies as opposed to going up to the assasination of the Romanov family the real climax I was waiting for So far this review is much about my own lameness than it is about the finale of this trilogy lets see if I can bring it home I think the conclusion and the choice of timeline creates a very interesting juxtaposition The audience travels through the lifetimes of these historical figured and follows the story through to a conclusion so there is a sense of finality and completion and yet not because in the historical context the revolution has yet to even begin So though we ve traveled through all the dramatic devices to the conclusion of the story its nothing than a preuel to the mail event I love Stoppards use of this finality as a gateway to drive home one of the main points of the play revolution is not the relm of old philosophers it will always be brought about by the passion of the young So at once he s able to give full recognition to those paved the way while showing that by the time the starts were aligned they were powerless to bring about the change themselves The end is tragic and hopeful at the same time because the audience has the outside knowledge that these ideas will live on and their revolution will come to pass but so will all their fears of chaos and anarchy It is true that the dream of a peaceful revolution from above is just that a dream

    The last play of The Coast of Utopia is elegiac in tone Herzen’s dream of a liberalized and humane Russia has been shouldered aside by a generation of radical activists who see him as a doddering anachronism in the words of one a “millionaire socialist” But Herzen could intuit — if not exactly foresee — that the radicals’ absolutism would simply replace one form of Russian despotism with another which was the first tr
