Kevin Tuite – The Banner of Xaxmat’is-Jvari: Vazha-Pshavela’s Xevsureti

아이폰 유튜브 mp3 다운로드

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.
