ARMENIAN GENOCIDE IN LITERATURE: The Second Generation Responds

$ 40.00

DESCRIPTION

by Rubina Peroomian

The children of survivors of the Armenian Genocide were affected by their parent’s traumatic experience: regardless of how they or their parents perceived and dealt with the trauma, its psychological effects were impressed upon the family atmosphere and familial relationship.

This volume, the fourth by the author in her continuing study and analysis of Diasporan Armenian literature, shows how the shadow of the Genocide has surfaced in the works of second-generation Armenian writers to reflect a variety of reactions/responses conditioned by the individual’s perception of the past, in the context of his or her relationship with mainstream society and the dominant culture.
