Karapet DardarianHe was born on November 8, 1927, in the city of Hamedan, but he also lived in Boroujerd and Arak. After his father’s death, they spent some time in Maragheh and Tabriz, and later moved to Tehran. His maternal grandfather was from Hamedan, but his father was a survivor of a family whose entire members had perished during the Armenian Genocide in 1915. He had fled from Turkey to Iran and his fate had dragged him to the garden of Karo’s maternal grandfather. They also allowed him to live in the garden. After a while, Karo’s parents, Takohi, fell in love and got married. The marriage produced eight children, five sons named Zavan, Wigan, Caro, Herand and Vahe, and three daughters named Juliet, Helen and Armine. Karo was the third child in the family, and the Karo family first moved to Arak because of their father’s job, carpet weaving. A year later, they also went to Boroujerd. Less than two years after their stay in the city, their father died of pneumonia at the age of 39, posing a serious challenge to his family. Forced him to abandon Armenian poetry and start composing Persian poems. This required reading classical Persian poetry. “I did not read classical poetry, but swallowed it because I did not want people to say that he is an Armenian poet who also writes in Persian,” he said. “I wanted to strengthen my position as a Persian poet.” “I did not read classical poems, but swallowed them because I did not want people to say that this is an Armenian poet who also writes in Persian. “I wanted to strengthen my position as a Persian poet.” “I did not read classical poems, but swallowed them because I did not want people to say that this is an Armenian poet who also writes in Persian. “I wanted to strengthen my position as a Persian poet.”
Karo says his father jobs carpets retail made it their job and perhaps why a place still Nmyshdym and wherein said in Boroujerd : where my father was thirty-nine years, despite the body fit and healthy and absolute strict – with a ” pneumonia ” simple, link forever live with break … in ” Boroujerd ”that my father, by the order of fate, joined his own brothers and sisters earlier than expected; And he also says somewhere: And we did not understand how it happened that we suddenly found ourselves in the birthplace of ” Sattar Khan “.
Karo’s World view
Karo started writing poetry at the age of fourteen, but his desire for fame led him to abandon Armenian poetry and start composing Persian poetry. This required reading classical Persian poetry. “I did not read classical poetry, but swallowed it because I did not want people to say that he is an Armenian poet who also writes in Persian,” he said. “I wanted to strengthen my position as a Persian poet.”
Karo got what he wanted very soon, he writes in my brother vigen book :
“I was one of the most famous poets in Iran at that time. Even Nusrat Rahmani, who was well-known to me, fell behind me… The reason was very simple: Nusrat Rahmani was a silent rebel. I am a rebellious rebel…
And I once realized that Vigen is not Karo’s brother, but Karo has become Vigen ‘s brother! Believe. At the same time that Nusrat Rahmani and I were the most famous poets of the time, the unique time of our country did not have time to get to know Nima … otherwise it would not have been possible for Nusrat Rahmani and I – especially me – to be the newcomers of the era. At the same time, we had integrated poets who were great in a way. Ahmad Shamloo, Siavash Kasraei, Omid Khorasani, Houshang Ebtehaj, Akhavan Sales, Nader Naderpour, these all existed. But at that time, I was the most famous poet of the day. “
It seems that what made this work famous and popular for his literary works was his humane view of all aspects and phenomena of life at that time, a view that creates a literary writing by seeing every poetic event. From war, racism, oppression, poverty, displacement, loneliness, love, and infidelity to writing letters to Yuri Gagarin, Kennedy, and others.
Return to the beginning of the sand and epics such as the Romain Rolland brought reflecting his approach to art: “If art and truth can not live together, let art die. An art that is responsible and committed to human beings. ”
What makes these writings not seem fake is the hard work and family life of a child that shaped such a worldview. This dark view may even be influenced by Hedayat’s honest view of the world, but it is largely real. Perhaps that is why in his first book he writes his will and says that he is no longer dead as a work , and henceforth everything he writes is for man, for the suffering man of our century, however bitter it may be. Although it is dark:
Our century, is a shell,
not a sand… sonnet is …epic …
In such a century, I can not, with the same words, in the same way and with the same weapon – in the past centuries poets, caravan riders, invited camels to drive slowly – the colorful caravans of our century, the belly of the caravan of the hungry To not ask for bread, to beat the hearts of the caravan of slaves slowly, to invite the tears of the life of the caravan owners of the millions of anonymous deaths not to collapse at the crossroads! The poet of our century, the writer of our century, as the natural result of the poetry and literature of ancient times, is the inevitable child of our century! …
Therefore, his speech cannot be the result of just one cause. The speaker of our century is himself the immediate result of a series of causes, and his speech is the motto of the dawn of the awakening of nations. “
