Author: Suren Muradyan
Suren Muradyan's collection entitled "With Tumanyan" is released on the occasion of the great Armenian poet's 145th anniversary and his 85th anniversary. ?
?Having authored 110 books, Suren Muradyan confesses that Tumanyan's works have always been his source of inspiration, and he considers himself Tumanyan’s humble and grateful disciple. S. Muradyan has dedicated hundreds of articles, poems to Tumanyan which have been published in Armenian, Russian; in Armenia and beyond its borders.
Tumanyan wrote poems, quatrains, ballads, novels, fables, critical and journalistic articles. His work was mostly written in realistic form, often centering on everyday life of his time. Born in the historical village of Dsegh in the Lori region, at a young age he moved to Tiflis, which was the center of Armenian culture under the Russian Empire during the 19th and early 20th centuries. He soon became known to the wide Armenian society for his simple but very poetic works.
Many films and animated films have been adapted from his works. Two operas: Anush by Armen Tigranian and Almast by Alexander Spendiaryan, were written based on his works.
