Georgian Female Poets by Mariam Tsiklauri
Georgian Poetry, with its rich language, ancient poetic tradition, deep innovative
thought and strong motive, ever increasingly needs to be shared with
a wider world and with modern readers.
Georgia is most famous as a spellbinding touristic designation, as it is the
ancient motherland of wine, wheat and unique polyphonic songs. This is
also the region, Colchis, from where the Argonauts stole the Golden Fleece
and they kidnapped the sorceress Medea, daughter of Aeetes and the granddaughter
of Helios. But very few people know anything about those many
other Medeas, who with powerful, magic words manage to heal the wounded
soles of the restless contemporary humanity. Georgia has had a significant
number of female poets, worthy of international attention. We consider
it crucially important to translate their works into various languages and
promote them worldwide.
Georgia belongs to a small group of countries having the oldest poetry tradition
and rich folklore. It is the country where poetry bears utmost importance,
where there is a tradition of preaching and praying in poetical forms,
talking to each other with verses, mourning the deceased with poems.
In our country the honorable part of a bride’s dowry was the main poem of
Georgia Shota Rustaveli’s “Knight in the Panther’s Skin” as well as other
manuscripts. Babies in Georgia used to speak their first words with poems.
The culture of poetic thinking is being preserved and developing in Georgia.
King Tamar, other queens, saints, noble or peasant Georgian women i used
to write poems and all of them contributed to the values of the great Georgian
literature and its unique poetry.
This combined collection consists of some 32-modern female authors. We
consider it worthwhile to present portions of these authors, as provided by
various translators, to foreign readers in this format. The collection is the
first of its kind, albeit an incomplete effort to produce such a publication of
this kind. We hope that a more complete or academic anthologies translated
into different languages will be forthcoming in the nearest future.
We gratefully thank Tbilisi City Hall, its Cultural Service and the Center for
Cultural Activities for funding the edition and their moral support.
Georgian-English anthology Georgian Female Poets, comprising poems of 32 Georgian female authors.
The publication of the anthology Georgian Female Poets was supported by the Tbilisi Centre of Cultural Events.
