Abstract:

Writer, dramatist, and political activist Aleksey Maksimovich Peshkov is better known by his pen name, Maxim Gorky. The choice of Gorky (literally "bitter" in Russian) as pseudonym reflected his anger about life in Russia and a determination to speak the bitter truth. Gorky wrote incessantly, viewing literature as a moral and political act that could change the world. At the heart of all his work was a belief in the inherent worth of the human person, but he struggled to resolve his contradictory feelings of faith and skepticism, love of life and disgust at the vulgarity and pettiness of the human world.
