Anthology of Georgian Poetry
Nature and history have combined to make Georgia a land of poetry. Glistening peaks, majestic forests, sunny valleys, crystalline streams clamoring in deep gorges have a music of their own which heard by the sensitive ear tends to breed poetic thought; while the incessant struggle of the Georgians against foreign invaders --Persians, Arabs, Mongols, Turks and others has bred in them a sense of chivalry and a deep patriotism which found expression in many a lay, ballad, and poem. Now, the treasures of Georgian literature, both ancient and modern, are accessible to millions of readers in English.
