FABLES OF MKHITAR GOSH, THE
Edited by Elise Antreassian, Translated and Introduced by Robert Bedrosian, Illustrated by Anahid Janjigian
Mkhitar Gosh was a major intellectual figure in Armenian life of the late 12th and early 13th centuries. who, while making an impact on his own and subsequent eras, was a product of his times. He was a medieval cleric, and not a social revolutionary. Still many of the morals he propounds remain interesting and relevant, though some might startle the modern reader. As Gosh said in concluding his tales, "If the fables are agreeable to some, thank the Lord. Otherwise, out of love for Him, forgive us."
