Mother by Maxim Gorʹkij( Book )

951 editions published between 1900 and 2021 in 38 languages and held by 3,447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Mother, one of his best-known works, is the story of the radicalization of an uneducated woman that was later taken as a model for the Socialist Realist novel, and his autobiographical masterpiece Childhood. In his novel, Gorky portrays the life of a woman who works in a Russian factory doing hard manual labour and combating poverty and hunger, among other hardships. Pelageya Nilovna Vlasova is the real protagonist; her husband, a heavy drunkard, physically assaults her and leaves all the responsibility for raising their son, Pavel Vlasov, to her, but unexpectedly dies. Pavel noticeably begins to emulate his father in his drunkenness and stammer, but suddenly becomes involved in revolutionary activities. Abandoning drinking, Pavel starts to bring books to his home. Being illiterate and having no political interest, Nilovna is at first cautious about Pavel's new activities. However, she wants to help him. Pavel is shown as the main revolutionary character. Nevertheless Nilovna, moved by her maternal feelings and, though uneducated, overcoming her political ignorance to become involved in revolution, is considered the true protagonist of the novel
Creatures that once were men by Maksim Gorky( )

62 editions published between 1900 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maxim Gorky continues to be regarded as the greatest literary representative of revolutionary Russia. Born of the people, and having experienced in his own person their sufferings and their misery, he was enabled by his extraordinary genius to voice their grievances and their aspirations for a better life. This collection includes his benchmark masterpieces "Creatures That Once Were Men" and "Twenty-Six Men and a Girl" as well as "Chelkash" and "My Fellow-Traveller", and represents the very best of Gorky's genius

Foma Gordeyev by Maksim Gorʹkij( Book )

236 editions published between 1899 and 2019 in 18 languages and held by 1,982 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gorky started working on Foma Gordeyev in 1898. "It is supposed to present the broad and true picture of the contemporary life, while featuring the figure of an energetic, healthy man, craving for space to realize his power's potential. He feels restricted. Life smothers him. He realizes that there is no place for heroes in it, they are apt to being defeated by small things, like Hercules, the conqueror of hydras, crashed by hordes of mosquitoes," he wrote in a February 1898 letter to the publisher S. Dorovatsky. Gorky considered his hero an atypical figure in the context of Russian merchant community. "Foma is just a sprightly man looking for freedom but feeling thwarted by life's conventions," he wrote in the same letter, promising to soon embark upon another novel, telling by way of redressing the balance, the life of a 'true' tradesman, a smart and cynical crook, going by the name of Mikhail Vyagin (the project never materialized)

In Gorky's greatest work, the characters are the dregs of society hovelled in a ramshackle inn: a thief, a degenerate baron, a prostitute, an alcoholic actor, the seedy proprietor, his sister-in-law who loves the thief and others. Their discontent grows until a whistler comes to perk up their spirits and they begin to grow hopeful. In one of their quarrels a brawl erupts, the proprietor is killed, others are jailed and the drunken actor rises to the pinnacle of his performance by hanging himself

Decadence by Gao er ji( Book )

133 editions published between 1900 and 2002 in 11 languages and held by 1,218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of all Gorky's novels, The Artomonovs is the most impressive and dramatic. In this book Gorky displays at their best the power of creating character and the gift for managing scenes of energetic action which won world-wide admiration for his early stories. His distinctive blend of humor and tragedy, violence and pity, exuberance and introspection, is here put at the service of a grander and more moving theme than he had hitherto attempted, the tragic failure of Russia's middle classes in the decades before the Revolution, seen in the small-town microcosm of a family of textile manufacturers. The rise and fall of the Artomonovs is seen across one of the Great Divides of history. The Revolution is a cataclysm in which three generations of Artomonov enterprise are inevitably swept away. Thereby the events of their lives are given a sharp edge of finality, rarely to be found in fiction
A harvest of Russian children's literature by Miriam Morton( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1,094 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bystander by Maksim Gorky( Book )

21 editions published between 1930 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,042 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the first of a 4-part work about the life of one Clim Sanghin, a member of the Russian gentry living in pre-Revolution Russia. The time period of "Bystander" is 1880 through about 1905 and we are shown, through a somewhat absurdist perspective, the rot and dissassociation from reality at the core of this class of Russian society

Enemies by Maksim Gorky( Book )

21 editions published between 1972 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 819 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
