Born July 18 (30), 1883; died May 24, 1920. Georgian poet.

The son of a poor peasant, Chkhikvadze took part in the Revolution of 1905–07. His first collection of verse was published in 1908. In his poetry Chkhikvadze strove to express the ideas of social and national liberation. He was a major representative of the democratic school in Georgian poetry. Chkhikvadze’s intimate and philosophic lyrics sometimes exhibit pessimistic attitudes and motifs of loneliness and impending doom.
