The Confused Sons
- LITERARY CRITICISM-DOCUMENTARY PROSE
Otar Chkheidze’s trilogy is a literary chronicle of the 1990s Georgia. Although it was rather hard to break the rules of “controlled writing” and leave the boundaries of the accepted style, he achieved what Ilia Chavchavadze dreamt of: “Speak about the times when it is forbidden”.
In her book Nestan Pipia gives an in-depth analysis of Otar Chkheidze’s prose, delves into the artistic layers of his trilogy, but offers her insight with consideration of his entire literary works. The book not only presents the writer’s artistic methods, but his personal and professional views, which are extremely valuable in analyzing the social and political aspects of our modern times.
