This antiquarian book contains Gorky Maxim's 1906 novel, "The Mother". It is a moving and thought-provoking narrative of the parallel between the evolution of one man's mother and the evolution of Mother Russia. Mother is uneducated and has been beaten in her life, and has a loving son who wants to protect her. The son is a revolutionary. As the mother starts to read and educate herself, she becomes close to the revolutionaries who frequent her house, and eventually risks it all to make Russia a better society. Alexei Maximovich Peshkov (1868 - 1936) was a Russian writer and political activist who founded the Socialist Realism literary method. This seminal book has since been translated into many languages and adapted for the screen numerous times. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern edition, complete with a new prefatory biography of the author.

Alexei Maximovich Peshkov (1868 - 1936), primarily known as Maxim Gorky, was a Russian and Soviet writer, a founder of the socialist realism literary method and a political activist. He was also a five-time nominee for the Nobel Prize in Literature. 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, My Childhood, The Mother, Summerfolk and Children of the Sun. He had an association with fellow Russian writers Leo Tolstoy and Anton Chekhov; Gorky would later mention them in his memoirs. Gorky was active with the emerging Marxist social-democratic movement. He publicly opposed the Tsarist regime, and for a time closely associated himself with Vladimir Lenin and Alexander Bogdanov's Bolshevik wing of the party. For a significant part of his life, he was exiled from Russia and later the Soviet Union. In 1932, he returned to USSR on Joseph Stalin's personal invitation and died there in June 1936.
