Nadiradze, Kolau (Nikolai) Galaktionovich

 

Born Feb. 24 (Mar. 8), 1895, in Kutaisi. Soviet Georgian poet.

Nadiradze studied at the faculty of law of Moscow University from 1912 to 1916. He was a leading representative of Georgian literary symbolism, and in 1916 his works appeared in the anthology The Blue Horns, the organ of the Georgian symbolists. His first book of poems, Catafalque, appeared in 1920. In the mid-1920’s, Nadiradze moved away from symbolism and began depicting Soviet reality in his poetry. He is the author of numerous poetry collections, including On the Great Road (1946), Verses (1955), and Verses and a Narrative Poem (1964). He compiled Selected Works: Verses and Translations (1962), which contains Russian poems and translated French poems. He has been awarded the Order of the Red Banner of Labor and several medals.

Of course, that's all taradiddle; he lies like a horse, for I know this Dushkin, he is a pawnbroker and a receiver of stolen goods, and he did not cheat Nikolay out of a thirty-rouble trinket in order to give it to the police.
And the day before yesterday they arrested Nikolay in a tavern at the end of the town.
The porter and Koch and Pestryakov and the other porter and the wife of the first porter and the woman who was sitting in the porter's lodge and the man Kryukov, who had just got out of a cab at that minute and went in at the entry with a lady on his arm, that is eight or ten witnesses, agree that Nikolay had Dmitri on the ground, was lying on him beating him, while Dmitri hung on to his hair, beating him, too.
If they, or Nikolay alone, had murdered them and broken open the boxes, or simply taken part in the robbery, allow me to ask you one question: do their state of mind, their squeals and giggles and childish scuffling at the gate fit in with axes, bloodshed, fiendish cunning, robbery?
Did anyone see Nikolay at the time that Koch and Pestryakov were going upstairs at first, and is there no evidence about that?
He hid from Koch, Pestryakov and the porter in the flat when Nikolay and Dmitri had just run out of it.
This brother Nikolay was the elder brother of Konstantin Levin, and half-brother of Sergey Ivanovitch; a man utterly ruined, who had dissipated the greater part of his fortune, was living in the strangest and lowest company, and had quarreled with his brothers.
I have come to look very differently and more charitably on what is called infamous since brother Nikolay has become what he is.
