KARS AS A NOVEL SPACE – 2012-2

According to Yeghishe Charents’ “Land of Nayiri” and Orhan Pamuk’s “Snow”

Summary

Vahram S. Danielyan
The article deals with two particular novels: Yegishe Charents’ “Land of Nayiri” and Orhan Pamuk’s “Snow.” The events of these two novels are set in the same city, Kars and the article is an attempt to describe the literary space from the perspectives of geographical, historical, political platforms; how these two different authors reconstruct and rediscover the city and its life from the perspective of different historical times, political worldviews and novelizing styles. This is also a new attempt to draw parallels between the literature of the two nations: Armenian and Turkish and to find a bonding point on the base of common literary space.
