Literary activity Potekhina began in 1852,. scenes of provincial life "Fun and pleasure in the town," published in The Contemporary. Then came the "Moskvityanin" a number of his stories and novels of the people's life: "Titus Sofronychev cauldron", "Peasant Woman" and others. They drew the attention of the knowledge of peasant life and the colorful language. The disadvantage is their exaltation of tone, in a spirit of sentimental Slavophile Populism.
