Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0882060260, Hardcover)This anthology is intended for use by anyone who has an adequate reading knowledge of Armenian. Hitherto, because of the lack of material, Armenian literature has been inaccessible to those whose primary language is not Armenian. We have tried to remedy that situation by offering a book prepared in accordance with the principles and practices of literary anthologies used in the teaching of western European literatures. The volume consists of three parts; I, an introduction, 2. the main body of the text, and 3"" a glossary. The introduction provides a brief discussion of the beginnings and the problems of the Western Armenian Renaissance as a background for the literary panorama that follows. The main body of the book contains the selections in Armenian grouped under the headings ""Romanticism,"" ""Realism,"" ""Satire,"" ""The Post-Bealist or 'Artist Generation,'"" and ""Literature of the Diaspora,"" arranged by authors in chronological order within a given group. Every section consists of a general discussion of the literary movement or genre and a biographical sketch of each author followed by his works. Footnotes are added to explain references and vocabulary which, in our opinion, may be unfamiliar to the reader. Although we have been liberal with our footnoting in order to facilitate the reading and appreciation of literature, we do not claim to have anticipated all the difficulties of all the readers, who will have a variety of backgrounds. A complete glossary is at the end of the volume, which contains all the words used in the book. The selections come from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the period of the development of western Armenian literature. They are confined to poems, short stories, portions of essays, and excerpts from novels.
