THE EXPOSURE OF THE SYSTEMIC VICES OF THE SOVIET REGIME IN NODAR DUMBADZE’S NOVEL “TETRI BAIRAGEBI”
First and foremost, we would like to note that Nodar Dumbadze's work is inadequately and poorly studied in Georgian literary criticism, therefore, we set out to research a number of aspects of Nodar Dumbadze's work and some noteworthy trends, taking into account the appropriate contexts. At the initial stage, we selected the novel "Tetri Bairagebi (The White Banners)" because, if not in the entire work of the writer, even in this novel alone, several very important problems can be freely identified, which are interesting from the point of view of research. Thus, in our previous studies, we have already studied some important directions, which, in fact, were left unnoticed, for example, we analyzed the biblical-Christian paradigms in the novel; We reviewed the problem of the false (completely opposite) interpretation of a specific issue from the same novel, and the present work is a continuation of the cycle of research that we are carrying out around the novel, and at the same time, the work is absolutely individual in relation to previous studies, as in this case we will completely address the problem. In particular, the set of passages in the novel "Tetri Bairagebi (The White Banners)" uniquely and completely clearly exposes the vicious features of the Soviet system, which are voiced in a quite disguised and undeclared manner and are the subject of further research and identification. The context of the era should also be taken into account, whereas all of this is written during the existence of the regime, and most importantly, with such high skill that the writer manages to survive creatively and to avoid censorship.
