"Zareh Khrakhuni is the continuation of Tekeyan. He is one of the
Istanbul Armenian creators who started to think how to raise current
Armenian literature to a classical level, including its love, art, and
mentality," poet and Lebanon Armenian Aram Sepechyan said today at the
presentation of the "Tonazang" poetry collection at the Writer’s Union.

in Armenian literature, saying it differs from others in its lack of
punctuation. "This is indeed a revelation in current literature. He
returned to the style of the 10-15th centuries," Sepechyan said.

last. Khrakhuni has been able to create a poetic sphere in Armenian
We note that at the conclusion of the book presentation, connected
with the writer’s 80th birthday, Ananyan presented the writer with a
Writer’s Union medal. Until now, Khrakhuni has authored 30 collections
