Author(s): Nata Achmeteli

Den Südkaukasus gibt man für die Heimat der Weinrebe, und die Leute, die das Territorium von Georgien bevölkert hatten, waren von altesher, natürlich, bekannt mit der Weinrebe.

The fairy-tale and the child

Author(s): Rusudan Cholokashvili

The fairy-tale is one of the primordial literary genres, in which the archaic world-view is represented. To be sure, the myth is an older form, but it is a form of cognition rather than a creative product - the ancient beliefs concerning the universe presented in it were perceived as real. Compared to myth, the fairy-tale is an act of prevarication, since the mythic materials gathered into it have been reworked, and already appear as unreal to the teller of the tale.
