Wound of Armenia

Author: Khachatur Abovyan

Khachatur Abovyan (October 15 [O.S. October 3] 1809 – April 14 [O.S. April 2] 1848 (disappeared)) was an Armenian writer and national public figure of the early 19th century who mysteriously vanished in 1848 and eventually presumed dead. He was an educator, poet and an advocate of modernization. Reputed as the father of modern Armenian literature, he is best remembered for his novel Wounds of Armenia. Written in 1841 and published posthumously in 1858, it was the first novel published in the modern Armenian language using the Eastern Armenian dialect instead of Classical Armenian.

Abovyan was far ahead of his time and virtually none of his works was published during his lifetime. Only after the establishment of the Armenian SSR was Abovyan accorded the recognition and stature he merited. Abovyan is regarded as one of the foremost figures not just in Armenian literature but Armenian history at large. Abovyan's influence on Western Armenian literature was not as strong as it was on Eastern Armenian, particularly in its formative years.
