This chapter looks at questions of mediation in C.L.R. James’s Haitian revolutionary history The Black Jacobins. It contains a large excursus on problems of expansion and contraction and embodiment in Rodin’s sculpture as well as C.L.R. James’s and Rilke’s encounters with Rodin’s work, in particular St. John the Baptist. I engage the scholarship of Hazel Carby on Paul Robeson as well as David Scott’s work on C.L.R. James, including James’s encounter with Marx’s The Eighteenth Brumaire.

Keywords:   mediation, Marx, The Eighteenth Brumaire, Hazel Carby, Paul Robeson, C.L.R. James, Rilke, Rodin, St. John the Baptist, The Black Jacobins
