Creatures that once were men by Maksim Gorky( )

41 editions published between 1900 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If you strip off the mask of convention, lay aside the restraints which belong to the code of respectibility, and expose raw human nature with its barbarous proclivities and its flashes of inspiration, you have Maxim Gorky's "Creatures That Once Were Men". It is a name which these creatures themselves accept with cynical rejoicing; if they have ceased to be men, they have become brutes and gods, the brute presumably predominating because once they were men. Maxim Gorky has chosen for his subject the inmates of a doss-house that he may the more clearly show human nature untrammelled, as revealed in men, gross, vicious, foul-mouthed, hating authority, cut loose from the past, without hope for the future, seizing the brutal but conceivably brilliant present, and laughing to scorn every accepted dogma of society. By this means he throws into naked contrast the shams of civilization, supported on one side by a well-dressed, cheating, pertinacious merchant; on the other side by a cringing inn-keeper with the nature of a flunkey; on the other side by corporations, courts, and inspectors of police -- the machinery of society
The lower depths, and other plays by Maksim Gorky( Book )

271 editions published between 1900 and 2012 in 18 languages and held by 1,720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Widely regarded as Gorky's dramatic masterpiece, The Lower Depths reveals the author's unrivaled knowledge of the Russian proletariat. A sleazy boarding house is home to a group of wretched souls who spend their days arguing, playing cards, telling stories and debating the merits of two different views of life: whether it is better to live without illusions on one's own strengths, or to harbor a romanticized view of the world in order to shield oneself from the pain of daily life. Gorky's eye for physical detail, and special talent for breathing life into down-and-out characters on the fringes of society, are brilliantly displayed in this compelling drama
Foma Gordeyev by Maksim Gorky( Book )

238 editions published between 1894 and 2010 in 18 languages and held by 1,363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Foma Gordeyev (1899), illustrates Gorky's admiration for strength of body and will in the masterful barge owner and rising capitalist Ignat Gordeyev, who is contrasted with his relatively feeble and intellectual son Foma, a "seeker after the meaning of life". Wishing to know the meaning of life, Foma has trouble accepting capitalistic views; he denounces local moneyed dignitaries by shouting reminders of their unsavory pasts for all to hear at a ship launching. He is hustled off to an insane asylum. Released, he is a drunken, broken man who wanders about the town, out of his mind and in rags. He is befriended only by his godfather's daughter, a childhood friend ... Offers a vivid picture of Russian life at the turn of the twentieth century and of the merchant class, the backbone of the Russian society before the Russian Revolution

Enemies by Maksim Gorky( Book )

32 editions published between 1906 and 2007 in 8 languages and held by 839 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1905. Russia is at a turning point. Zakhar Bardin is from the landowning class, but is now the uneasy owner of a factory. His managing director is determined to face down militant workers on a point of principle. But the shutting of the business has tragic consequences for everyone concerned. Gorky's extraordinary play, which was written in exile and banned in his home country, presents a panoramic view of a restless society, with a bourgeoisie no longer sure of its own values, and a working class steadily facing up to the terrifying sacrifices ahead. Described by Ronald Bryden in the Observer in 1971 as 'a real discovery . . . the missing link between Chekhov and the Russian revolution', Enemies has a dramatic breadth, humour and ambition unique to Gorky
