Book Blurb:

Mother, the immortal classic of Maxim Gorky, gives a broad and generalized picture of life in Russia on the eve of the Revolution of 1905. Pelageya is the wife of a factory worker who ignores the political upheaval in her country in favor of caring for her personal life. She represents hundreds of workers who are concerned with living their lives. Her son Paval takes a different path and joins the revolution inspiring many Russians who were living under a capitalistic society in Russia. She also takes an active participation in her people's struggle for justice. Through her work, she frees herself from the cowed state into which she has been beaten, and her simple motherly concern for her son becomes a motherly concern for all oppressed.
