Poet Abraham Alikian Dies in Beirut

Abraham Alikian, one of the most important poets of the Armenian diaspora, passed away in Beirut this Saturday.

Alikian was born in Beirut in 1928 and immigrated to Armenia in 1946.

For the past year, Alikian had been a resident of the National Old Age Home in Bourdj Hamoud.

Tasting the bitterest fruit of exile and having experienced the most “red” ill-fates of returnees, Alikian’s blazing memory will remain sculpted in our conscience, the eternal word, and on the road to Golgotha towards true literature.
