ASTROLOGER OF KARABAGH: THE ESTABLISHMENT OF FORTRESS
by Platon P. Zubov / Edited and Annotated by Ara Ghazarians / Translated by Artashes Emin
The Astrologer of Karabagh is a fascinating historical novel. Shrouded in a passionate love story, it is based on developments in 18th-century Karabagh, which at the time was engulfed in tumult and transformation. The novel portrays the historic life-experience of a people. It recounts within its limits how a people have lived and toiled. It highlights its customs, traditions, and manners; its intellectual and moral characteristics. In other words, it personifies the man of times past in its original and primordial shape, which has evolved over time and become unrecognizable for the present generation.
