Abstract

The main part of Vazha-Pshavela’s literary works are transpierced with the aspiration for cosmic unity and the idea of harmony within the universe. His creative works reflect the breakthrough of reality and the access to the mystery. His consciousness equally penetrates an intangible, out of this world universe and visible material reality, humanism in his works equals up to cosmic heights. Vazha’s pathos is encircled by divine grace, caring for the neighbor and manifestation of human love in his works are always in priority. We see that the leading power in his creative works is in belief in the world’s harmonic integrity. His poem ‘’What made me a human being?’’ Is saturated with pathos, mentioned the above. The main motive of poet’s discontent is dissociation and isolation of the world’s integrity, that is the reason why he calls himself as ’’miserable person’’.

The desire of penetration in the very essence of nature is clearly stated here, the human being who sensed the interconnection of micro and macro space is in the centre of cosmic harmony And also the connection of land and heaven.

Vazha Pshavela’s poetic genius serves to portray two kind of realities, one of them is real for us and therefore visible and the other is unreal, intangible, out of this world reality.
