- NOTES AND DIARIES, LITERARY CRITICISM-DOCUMENTARY PROSE
Mikheil Javakhishvili recorded his thoughts deliberately and purposefully. He said: "Every single day I write down approximately ten ideas, opinions and impressions of the seen and heard, which my peers find ludicrous in the same way as savages found the Europeans’ habit of brushing their teeth ridiculous".
The entries testify how hard his personal and public life was, full of criticism, threats and insults. However, his great talent enabled him to create the prose we call classics nowadays. The present publication sheds light on his biography, as well as provides sufficient material to explain numerous secrets of everyday life, national, social and literary milestones.
