Covering the years from 1884 to 1888 Gorky details the lives of Russia's lower strata of society. These formative years of his youth were the impetus for his advocacy of social and political change. By 1889 he was openly associating himself with the Marxist social democratic movement and he openly criticised the Tsarist regime. His political activities meant he was forced into exile in Capri. Although he was granted in the celebrations of the 300th anniversary of the Romanovs he returned to Europe in 1921 and settled in Berlin. It was here that he managed to continue his writing and many of his works were published.
