About Book

Book Description
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.

The room was close, and for some reason smelled strongly of shoe blacking. Two gendarmes and the village police commissioner, Ryskin, their heavy tread resounding on the floor, removed the books from the shelves and put them on the table before the officer. Two others rapped on the walls with their fists, and looked under the chairs. One man clumsily clambered up on the stove in the corner. Nikolay's pockmarked face became covered with red patches, and his little gray eyes were steadfastly fixed upon the officer.
