Creatures that once were men by Maksim Gorky ( )
41 editions published between 1900 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,735 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 )
133 editions published between 1900 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 1,388 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 )
141 editions published between 1900 and 2010 in 12 languages and held by 1,257 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

Mother by Maksim Gorky ( Book )
103 editions published between 1906 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book gives a broad and generalized picture of life in Russia on the eve of the Revolution of 1905. The narrative is based on events which took place in the town of Sormovo. Pyotr Andreyevich Zalomov, a Sormovo worker, and his mother Anna Kirillovna served as prototypes for the main characters in Gorky's novel, embodied in Pavel Vlassov, a revolutionary, and his mother Nilovna, a workman's wife. The life and activities of the Zalomova presented Gorky with material from which he created typical characters and situations. Through the fascinating people in this book he expressed his concept -- a concept born of much hard experience -- of the beauty and greatness of those who are selflessly devoted to the most advanced ideas of their day and to the cause of the people

Enemies by Maksim Gorky ( Book )
10 editions published between 1972 and 2006 in English and held by 782 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
