He has published several books on Charents (e.g. The organ of History, 2007) and on Hovhannes T’umanyan (T’umanyan’s Poetics and its Popular Roots, 1990, and This gifted genius from Lori, 2009), as well as on narratology (Literary Narrative: A Theoretical Review, 1986). Recently, his acclaimed introduction to the world of the Armenian Epic was translated into English by Prof Peter Cowe (UCLA) as “Daredevils of Sasun. Poetics of an Epic” (Mazda Publishers, Costa Mesa CA, 2008).

All are cordially invited.
