Synopsis

Maxim Gorky's short stories provide a candid and unflinching portrayal of life among the downtrodden of Russian society. Drawing on experiences from the author's own early life, which was characterised by poverty and abuse, his tales feature resourceful thieves, delinquent tramps, and browbeaten workers. Including 'The Outcasts', 'Makar Chudra', 'One Autumn Night' and 'Twenty-Six and One', this stunning collection helped forge Gorky's reputation as the founder of literary socialist realism.

Maxim Gorky (1868-1936) was a Russian writer who was nominated five times for the Nobel Prize. A political opponent of the Tsarist regime, he initially supported Lenin's Bolshevik party before becoming disillusioned with Communist Russia in the years after the revolution. Though briefly exiled from the country of his birth, he was able to return there before his death in 1936.
