“The Song of the Bread” written by Armenian poet of the early 20th century Daniel Varoujan who was deported and murdered by the Young Turk government during Armenian Genocide has been translated into Turkish and published in Istanbul.
As Ermenihaber reports, the publication was initiated by Aras publishing house and translated by Ohanna Shahkal.
“The Song of the Bread” – a fifty-page collection of poems – is one of Varoujan’s major works.
Confiscated during the genocide, it was an unfinished manuscript at the time of his death. Reportedly saved by bribing Turkish officials. “The Song of the Bread” was published posthumously in 1921. The poems celebrate the simple majesty of village agricultural life led by Armenian peasant farmers.
