About the Author:

Maxim Gorky (Alexei Maximovich Peshkov)(1868-1936) was one of the greatest Russian writers. He inherited the best traditions of 19th century classical Russian literature and was at the same time the creator of a new art, socialist realism; he laid the foundations of the young Soviet Literature.

In the early years of the last century Gorky came under the influence of Anton Chekhov and through him established contact with Konstantin Stanislavsky and Vladimir Nemirovish-Danchenko, the leading figures of the Moscow Art Theater; for this theater he wrote his plays "Philistines" and "The Lower Depths." "The Lower Depths" made a triumphant tour of many European countries and brought the writer world fame.

The Tsarist government tried in vain to put an end to his activities by constant arrests and exile. In the eyes of all progressive Russian society Maxim Gorky had already become the herald of the oncoming revolution. He drew near to the Bolsheviks and took an active part in the 1905 Revolution. In 1906 Gorky visited Western Europe and America where he publicly exposed the reactionary nature of the Russian autocracy and expounded the great idea that underlay the Russian popular revolutionary movement.

Gorky's articles on the struggle of progressive mankind against fascism were tremendously effective in the Patriotic War against Germany. Long before the war of 1941-45 Maxim Gorky, with unusual foresight, saw in fascism a mortal threat to humanity, a cancer that had formed in the world and had to be immediately removed.

The writer's influence on the Soviet people has been enormous; from 1917 to 1946 his books were published in 66 languages with a total printing of 42,000,000 copies. His pen and his civic activities were a powerful weapon against fascism. The enemy realized this and in 1936 fascist agents killed Maxim Gorky. They were, however, unable to kill the courageous, fiery and eternally living words of the great Soviet writer which are so carefully preserved and esteemed by the liberty loving peoples of the whole world.
