Gorky Maxim 1868 - 1936 (68)

“Happiness always looks small while you hold it in your hands, but let it go, and you learn at once how big and precious it is.”


One Autumn

Maxim Gorky (28 March 1868 – 18 June 1936), was a Soviet writer, a founder of the socialist realism literary method and a political activist.Around fifteen years before success as a writer, he frequently changed jobs and roamed across the Russian Empire; these experiences would later influence his writing. Gorky's most famous works were The Lower Depths (1902), Twenty-six Men and a Girl, The Song of the Stormy Petrel, The Mother, Summerfolk and Children of the Sun. He had an association with fellow Russian writers Leo Tolstoy and Anton Chekhov; Gorky would later write his memoirs on both of them.
