Portraits and Profiles by Edmond Y. Azadian
1995 0-7734-9044-2
The essays in this collection are not only personal records, documenting Azadian's literary experiences and convictions, but also the fruit of long analysis. The author engages his readers to the major themes in Armenian literature, and acquaints them with the modern masters in Armenian prose and poetry. Azadian's critical methodology is to penetrate his subject matter via the writer's personal life and professional output. A disciplined, self-described modernist, he views his literary figures in the light of originality and modernism.
