About this title


This collection contains the last essays of Gorky, which are related centrally to the theme stated in the title of this book-culture and the people. It is a representative selection from the voluminous publicist efforts in which the author was engaged during the last ten years of his life. Together with his book full of articles, On Guard for the Soviet Union, the present volume reveals a side of Gorky’s writing as necessary to an understanding of his work as his novels, stories, autobiographical volumes and plays. Some of the contributions are slashing polemics; many were written under the pressure of daily journalism, appearing in numerous periodicals, including the leading Soviet papers Pravda and Izvestia; all of them reflect the vigor and depth of Gorky’s literary talent

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 Theatre; for this theatre 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.
