- NOTES AND DIARIES
It is hard to overestimate Vakhtang Chelidze’s contribution to Georgian culture. For many years he was the editor of several literary magazines, such as Tsiskari, Literaturuli Sakartvelo and Khomli. His name is forever linked with translating the works of William Shakespeare, John Milton, Daniel Defoe, Mark Twain, Rudyard Kipling, Ernest Hemingway, John Steinbeck and Jerome Salinger into Georgian. His epic work in five volumes The Chronicles of Kartli is a historic narrative of Georgia’s past.
The records offered in the present publication comprise the material the author prepared for his autobiographical book but had no time to finish.
