I Built My Castle
- NOTES AND DIARIES
The poetic notes had never been intended to be published as a book. They were written at various times, following the social and political events of the country, reflecting those which frustrated Konstantine Gamsakhurdia Jr. the most. His thoughts and views eventually shaped into a specific compositional frame.
The book might not have been published, its leaves might have been lost forever, if not for a friendly encouragement: every segment has its individual subtitle, every etude or sketch has its own character in terms of a genre, its depth and width.
However, the main is the character of the author himself: his serenity and integrity, his ability to remain composed even in the tensest situations. (From Rostom Cheidze’s introduction)
