MAXIM GORKY, One of the finest
storywriters in modern world
literature,was born this day on
March 28 in 1868 in The Russian
Empire!
A prolific author who wrote good
deals of Novels,Novellas
,Shortstories and Memoirs during
his four decades of active literary
life!
His novel, ‘MOTHER’ is a treasure to
the world literature and remains
sort of a SACRED TEXT for radicals n
revolutionaries around the
world ! Rarely a book has ever
depicted the pathos n penury, the
ideals n idioms of people who are
revolutionaries !
Leading a rather vagabound type
life for most of his early life as he
had lost both mother n father
before he could have had his own
senses of life, Gorky got himself
well acquainted with the lives of
the poors,the destitutes,the
orphans or what we could term as
THE UNDERDOGS OF SOCIETY whose
fate seemed permanently
entwined with the margins of
society !
Gorky was like the greatest novelist
of all time,FYODOR DOSTOEVSKY, in
terms of sketching lives of the
people who belong to the lower
stratum of society(of course
Gorky’s canvas was smaller than
that of Dostoevsky.).
A political activist almost all
through his life,MAXIM GORKY could
well fit in the Sartre’s Type of
AUTHOR-ACTIVIST .
Gorky,though,av oided direct
participation in the mainstream
politics,had kept close rapport to
the Socialist Wing and its top
leaders like Lenin n Stalin.
In short,we could be safe to say
that Gorky was much as a moral
force than political one behind the
radical upheavals and later the
Bolshevik Revolution!
He was also a fearless author who
didn’t hesitate when it had come
to criticise people like Lenin or
Stalin.
Like All Sensible Socialists,Gork y
too had become hugely
disappointed after the Socialists
came in power !
He died at 68 due to complications
of tuberculosis.
MAXIM GORKY HAD HAD AN
UNBELIEVABLE READERSHIP OF 10
MILLIONS INSIDE THE USSR ALONE
DURING HIS HEY DAYS IN 1910s n
1920s !!
Happy Birthday,MAXIM GORKY !
