Book Description

The first comprehensive and objective history of the literature of Georgia, revealed to be unique among those of the former Byzantine and Russian empires, both in its quality and its 1500 years' history. It is examined in the context of the extraordinarily diverse influences which affected it - from Greek and Persian to Russian and modern European literature, and the folklore of the Caucasus.


'The present volume will long serve both interested amateurs and professional scholars of Georgian...furnishing them with both hours of pleasurable reading and many thought-provoking in-sights.' - Bulletin of SOAS
