Georgia on the Edge

12 April, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 7:15 pm

A double bill of Georgia’s past through writers’ eyes: FROM THE KNIGHT IN THE PANTHER SKIN TO STALIN’S GREAT TERROR Historian Donald Rayfield, author of Edge of Empires and Stalin and His Hangmen, in conversation with Maya Jaggi, cultural journalist and Artistic Director of Georgia25. This world authority speaks about the ‘golden age’ of the medieval poet Shota Rustaveli, and his own translation of Kvachi (described
by William Boyd as the ‘picaresque masterpiece of 20th-century Georgian literature’), a novel denounced as pornographic and whose author was shot.
