THE THEME OF "SUPREME LOVE" AND THE IDEA OF "ETERNAL FEMININE” IN THE GALAKTION TABIDZE’S CREATIVE WORKS
Divine love/supreme love is the leading motif of Georgian classical poetry (hymnographers, "The knight in the panther’ skin”, King Archili, Davit Guramishvili, Nikoloz Baratashvili, Akaki Tsereteli ...).
Galaktion Tabidze continues the Georgian poetic tradition, which in turn leads to the fact that Galaktion's work was influenced by the motive of Russian theurgical symbolism - idea of "eternal feminine". This idea has its origins in European literature from Goethe (Ewige Weiblichkeit).
The cult of eternal feminine (mediator between heavenly and earthly origins) merged with the cult of the Virgin in Russian religious philosophy and symbolic poetry (Vladimir Soloviev). This theme found a great echo in the poetry of Alexander Block. In this regard, there are parallels between the poetry of Al. Blok and G. Tabidze, but the theme, as in all other cases, Galaktioni adapts in his own way.
