The Raven Sleeps on the Tree Top
- Modern Georgian Poetry
“I haven’t benefited in my life from anything except my age,” the author and the protagonist states, seemingly initiating his poetic reflection at the age of 17. The age is a new role and punishment for the experienced poet, who has voluntarily taken both in his solitude.
These new identities define the novelty of the book: the author presents the eternal topics familiar to his poetry in a new light of juxtaposition of life and death, love and hatred. All this is accompanied by an extraordinary sense of self-irony and exquisite humour, which certainly add to the attractiveness of the book which includes the works created as a mixture of poetry and prose, amazingly hard and easy to read at the same time.
