A Man Was Going Down the Road

Based on the legend of Jason and Medea, the novel is a subtle allegory of the conquest of Georgia by Russia (subtle enough to escape the Soviet censor), as well as a reconstruction of life on the Black Sea coast in 700 BC. It is also a study of the conflict between the artist's ideals and woman's needs. Beautifully written, this has been many Georgians' favourite novel.
