Georgian Symbolism: Context and Influence

Tatia Oboladze

Abstract


In the 1910s in the Georgian literary area the first Symbolist group TsisperiQantsebi (The Blue Horns) comes into being, with a clearly defined purpose and aesthetic position, which implied renewing the Georgian literature and including it into the Western context. Desiring to expand the thought area and to modernize Georgian literature, Georgian Symbolists rested on the philosophical and worldview principles of French Symbolism. Georgian Symbolism appears as an original invariant generated from the French Symbolist aesthetics, which is unequivocally national.
