Azat Yeghiazaryan: Daredevils of Sasun: The Poetics of the Armenian National Epic

Posted on April 23, 2016

Professor Azat Yeghiazaryan’s study of Daredevils of Sasun, translated into English by Professor S. Peter Cowe of UCLA, has established itself as an excellent introduction to the epic, maintaining a sound balance between the needs of a scholarly and more popular readership. Contextualizing his subject within the epic production of Western Europe, the Slavic lands, Anatolia and the Caucasus, and Central Asia, the author provides a clear summation of research on the epic and probes new areas.
