- Modern Georgian Poetry
“When asked why I keep writing, I fearfully stare at the hump of the bottomless abyss between the question and my body”, the author says. Fond of experimenting with the language, invariably intent on fresh metaphors, sleek epithets, spacious hyperboles and all-embracing allegories, Paata Shamugia is the master of skillfully mixing the comical with the tragic. The readers will find out more about his style and imagery when they read the present collection and become rightful members of the Schizosociety.
Paata Shamugia’s SCHIZOSOCIETY is the winner of the most important Georgian Literary Prize SABA (2015) for the best Georgian poetry.
