dc.description.abstract Vazha-Pshavela’s prose is diverse. In addition to the personification of nature, which is most frequently discussed, other motives are also interesting and important in his short stories. By observation of those short stories, the following two ideological directions are distinguished: the first direction, in which the influence of Tergdaleulebi is quite big and with which Vazha continues their path, and the second direction, which is an individual ideological direction of the writer and which presents absolutely new and different part of the author’sworldview. My article reviews the ideological and literary influence of the prosaic work of Ilia Chavchavadze, one of the most significant representative ofTergdaleulebi, on Vazha-Pshavela’s short stories. From this point of view I will review the short stories, such as: ‘The Mill’, ‘Mutsela’, ‘Darejani’, ‘Erem-Serem-Suremiani’, ‘My Trip to Erem-Serem-Suremiani’, etc. The comparative analysis of Ilia Chavchavadze’s and Vazha-Pshavela’s short stories shows that Vazha-Pshavela uses Ilia Chavchavadze’s techniques of presenting a character. For example, the main character of a short story ‘Mutsela’, by his physical characterization and his attitude to life, reminds the readers of LuarsabTatkaridze from the story ‘Is He Human This Man?!’. ‘Is He Human, This Man?!’ which was published in 1863, is one of the most important works of Ilia Chavchavadze and, in general, of Georgian literature of the 19th century. It seems that the story has influenced Vazha-Pshavela as well, who wrote the tale ‘Mutsela’ inspired by its main character LuarsabTatkaridze, which was published in 1895. Those stories have different story-line and the plot develops differently as well, although, in both stories, the authors have raised the same problem, they have developed one idea, and the similarity between the habits, appearance and lifestyle of the main characters serves for the implementation of that common idea. This short story includes the elements of satire as well, on which the influence of Ilia Chavchavadze’s writing style is quite obvious. In the above-mentioned stories the main messages of the authors are quite close to each other, however this interrelation is not ideological and Vazha-Pshavela manages to show his individualism. Short stories Erem-Serem�Suremiani’ and ‘My Trip to Erem-Serem-Suremiani’ convey the author’s viewpoint on the political and social events happening in Georgiain the 18th and 19th centuries. The main idea of those short stories coincides with Ilia Chavchavadze’s viewpoints presented in ‘Letters of a Traveler’ and in his publicist letters. Vazha-Pshavela’s short story ‘The Mill’ differs from the preexisting Georgian prose by its plot and literary devices although, even in this case, the author’s message is close to Ilia Chavchavadze’s viewpoints on social activity. A short story ‘Darejani’ is also very interesting, the prototype of the main character of which, in my opinion, is Otaraant Kvrivi (Otar’s widow). The similarity between the above�mentioned characters of the short stories by Vazha-Pshavela and Ilia Chavchavadze is obvious. Otar’s widow and Darejan are kind, strong and hard-working women, who astonish and surprise their fellow-villager. They are alike in terms of tragic fate as well, as they became widows early and the death of their children also became their common sorrow. Labour is one of the main conceptual ideas in Vazha-Pshavela’s entire work. The author presents labour as the mean for the person to walk on his/her life path with dignity. Therefore, it is not surprising that Ilia Chavchavadze’s‘Otar’s Widow’ might have influenced Vazha-Pshavelaand, as a result, he transferred the main character of the story in his work as well. Vazha-Pshavela’sindividualism and innovative thinking are, of course,most important for researching his work,however, in order to form a complete idea of the author’s ideological and literary development, it is necessary to research the influences of and the interrelationships with the authors, whose works were ahead of or coincided with Vazha-Pshavela’s work. en_US
