Gorky, Maxim: Confronting Life, v1, 8 February 2010.

Maxim Gorky [1868–1936]
Confronting Life [1905]
Translated by Frances Kovitch
First published in Cosmopolitan, Vol. 38, Cosmopolitan Publishing Company, New York, April 1905, p. 717.

This is one of three sketches by Gorky, whose publication was prohibited in Russia. It is very short. Two people confront Life and demand to know why they are not happy.

Always intended to read something by Gorky. This looks to be a good first. Maybe last...have read he's very difficult. His Wikipedia entry looks interesting...tomorrow!
Thanks,

It's a very short sketch and doesn't seem very difficult, CharlieBird. And it's quite poetic.
