Category: Unknown Grigol Robakidze
Translated by Manana Kvataia
The collection of Grigol Robakidze’s essays was first published in 1935 by Diederich Verlag, Yena, and was an immediate success in Europe. However, in Soviet Georgia the author was called ‘the traitor’ and ‘the people’s enemy’, which resulted in banning his works for many years.
The essays demonstrate the author’s erudition, artistic taste, acute observation and amazing intellect. It is suspected that there is the corresponding Georgian text, undiscovered though.
