Provokatören och andra noveller

By Maxim Gorky

»Skogsravinen sänkte sig tvärt ner mot den gula Oka, och dold bland grönskan på dess botten rann en bäck. Högt ovan ravinen – om dagen omärklig males om natten rastlöst dallrande – strömmade den blå himmelsfloden förbi: i den lekte stjärnorna likt gyllene fiskar. «

»Provokatören« och de övriga berättelserna i denna samling skrevs omkring mitten av 1920-talet less than Gorkijs andra exilperiod. De behandlar genomgående motsättningen känslokyla – mänsklig värme. Det ligger inte i Gorkijs intresse att fördöma, han vill som författare bära vittnesbörd.
