Antranig ANTREASSIAN --- Cliquer pour agrandir
The third child of the six children of Vahan and Satenig, Antranic Antreassian was born in 1909 in the Hazari village of Chmshgadzak, in Western Armenia. He and his older brothers were separated from their parents during the Turkish massacres of 1915, and were eventually placed in a series of orphanages, being finally transferred to Greece, after the Turkish occupation of Smyrna. When that orphanage was closed in 1924, the brothers joined their cousin, Vazken, in Aix-en Provence, France. In 1928, the brothers were at last reunited with their family in New York. In America, Antreassian worked at various jobs, and in 1936 founded the nor Kir literary monthly, with a group of young writers, and served as its editor. He subsequently edited the weekly, later semi-weekly, newspaper, Nor Or, in Fresno, the daily Baikar in Boston, and Hor Or again, this time in Los Angeles. While in Boston, he established the Baikar quarterly, a literary journal he edited for five years. He has traveled extensively to all active Armenian centers, including Armenia, where a collection of his fiction has been published. He is living in Los Angeles with his wife Azadouhi; their six children reside on both coasts of the United States, and in France. He is at work on a long novel planned as a trilogy, dealing with Armenian life and events from 1895 to the present. [1979]

Commentaire :

The central experience of the Armenian people in the 20th century was the massacre and deportation the Turks inflicted on them in 1915, which resulted in the death of about a million and a half Armenians, and the dispersion of a comparable number to countries around the-world. The tragedy, in all its varying facets, became the driving inspiration of much of the work of poets and writers in America who survived the massacre or were raised in the shadows it cast. Antranig Antreassian confronts this theme in a number of his stories, although a good part of his fiction is set in American life and experience, most particularly a recent novel, Through the Long night, which deals with the McCarthy era. In the stories collected in this volume, the author is largely concerned with the survivors who, while they escaped death in the holocaust, bear its psychic burdens all their lives —from the five-year-old Meger in an orphanage in Corfu, to the octogenarian Mazaret on his deathbed in Fresno.
