Like Byron’s passionate sayings „sounding on the tones of a wild and completely unsophisticated melody”, this is Gorky’s crazy, unbridled, powerful voice when he sings about the „madness of the brave,” barefoot dreamers who are proud of their idleness, who have nothing and fear nothing who is cheerful in his suffering, but unhappy in his joy.
