David of Sassoon is the national epic of the Armenian people. With roots in the distant past, the epic recounts, in four cycles, the exploits of the heroes of Sassoon, a region of historical Armenia to the west of Lake Van, as they pursue national liberation from foreign oppression. This bilingual volume presents the third cycle as retold by Armenia's national poet, Hovhannes Toumanian, along with Thomas Samuelian's English translation echoing the rhymes and rhythms of Toumanian's classic poem.
