The author examines Vazha’s nonfictional as well as fictional depictions of Xevsureti and the Xevsurs, with the aim of coming to a better understanding of what they represented for the writer who, more than any other, introduced them to a national readership 다운로드. He argues that Vazha deployed his portrayals of the Xevsurs, the most peripheral and “primitive” among the eastern Georgian mountain tribes, in two distinct domains, as regards both literary genre and mode of treatment: Whereas in his nonfiction writings Vazha sought to formulate a practical plan of development and action for the Georgian highlanders, in his major poetic works he explored the relation between the heroic individual and society in a mythic and aesthetic mode, culminating in the irreconcilable conflict between personal moral code and social obligations portrayed in “The Snake-eater”
