Otar Chiladze

Otar Chiladze (Georgian: ოთარ ჭილაძე) (March 20, 1933 — October 1, 2009) was a Georgian writer who played a prominent role in the resurrection of the Georgian prose in the post-Joseph Stalin era. His novels characteristically fuse Sumerian and Hellenic mythology with the predicaments of a modern Georgian intellectual.

Biography

Chiladze was born in Sighnaghi, a town in Kakheti, the easternmost province of then-Soviet Georgia. He graduated from the Tbilisi State University with a degree in journalism in 1956. His works, primary poetry, first appeared in the 1950s. At the same time, Chiladze engaged in literary journalism, working for leading magazines in Tbilisi. He gained popularity with his series of lengthy, atmospheric novels, such as "A Man Went Down the Road" (1972–3), "Everyone That Findeth Me" (1976), "Avelum" (1995), and others. He was a chief editor of the literary magazine Mnatobi since 1997. Chiladze also published several collections of poems and plays. He was awarded Shota Rustaveli Prize in 1983 and State Prize of Georgia in 1993.

Chiladze died after a long illness in October 2009 and was buried at the Mtatsminda Pantheon in Tbilisi. His elder brother Tamaz Chiladze is also a writer.
