25 December Marcel Proust

The book "In Search of Lost Time" by the French novelist, essayist and representative of modernism Marcel Proust is considered one of the most important novels of the 20th century. The writer lived in an era when social changes shook Europe. In this novel, written during this period, the writer is not interested in historical or political events, but in the time with conscious flow and in the imaginary world that tries to get its memory back.


18 December Mexican Poetry

Life in Latin America  in the early 20th century is characterized by the economic, political and spiritual conquest policy of the USA against Latin American peoples, which could not but be reflected in literature, especially in anti-imperialist novels of this period. Such literature created in Latin American countries is not deficient in national characteristics and thematic and language manifestations. In the first place, Mexican folk poetry is noteworthy: coplas (quatrains) and cancions (songs), with their mostly revolutionary themes, had a great influence on the further development of Mexican poetry...


11 December John Galsworthy

The name of the English novelist, playwright and essayist John Galsworthy is primarily associated with the series of novels "The Forsyte Saga" which made him famous as a great master of realistic prose. Galsworthy's prose is characterized by subtle observantness, sharp criticism, and lyricism. Some of his articles on literature are programs of realistic literature. He considered Tolstoy and Turgenev to be his literary teachers, and his literary orientation was the addressing of social and socio-psychological problems.

04 December Arnold Bennett

The broadcast is dedicated to the English novelist, playwright, essayist Arnold Bennett. His realistic prose was demonstrated particularly well in his novel "The Old Wives' Tale." He managed to depict masterfully the human drama and unrealized dreams and to inform everyday reality. This novel, which is about the irreversible motion of life and time, caused conflicting opinions among writers and literary critics…


27 November Romain Rolland

The broadcast is dedicated to the French writer and musicologist, Nobel prize winner as well as public figure Romain Rolland. In 1914 no one was given the Nobel Prize for Literature. Only in 1915, this prize was awarded to Romain Rolland. He had a special attitude toward Armenian culture and music. On the occasion of the translation of his famous novel "Jean Christophe," he compared Armenia, in terms of music, with Italy in the letter-preface of the novel. At the Sorbonne, Rolland organized Komitas's lecture and concert, noting that the music of Komitas is deep, tragic and valiant, even in its reverie.


20 November Gabriel García Márquez

The broadcast is dedicated to Colombian writer, Nobel prize winner, and master of magical realism Gabriel García Márquez. His literary path wasn't easy. Work, sleepless nights, three packs of cigarettes a day, severe illnesses, which he was able to overcome. He also endured the lack of attention from readers and literary critics for a long time. His first works, which he had written with great enthusiasm and much attention, being interesting and innovative, made the writer recognizable much later when he had already completed his largest novel, "One Hundred Years of Solitude."


13 November Louis Aragon

The name of the French poet, novelist, journalist and political activist Louis Aragon is well-known in the Armenian reality, because his attitude to the centuries-old Armenian literature is obvious. In 1955, he wrote an extensive article titled "The Millennial Procession of Armenia" where he especially valued Avetik Isahakyan and Yeghishe Charents, comparing them with major poets of the 20th century Éluard, Apollinaire, Rilke, Lorca, Yesenin, and Mayakovsky. On the occasion of the death of Avetik Isahakyan in 1957, Aragon wrote the article "In Memory of Avetik Isahakyan." In the article "Who Remembers the Armenian Genocide," he called the events of 1915 "the first genocidal crime against a living people."


06 November Heinrich Mann and Thomas Mann

 The Mann family that lived in the ancient city of Lübeck gave the world two outstanding writers, Heinrich and Thomas. Heinrich wanted to become an artist. He collaborated with the satirical weekly "Simplicissimus," and followed the lectures on art history at the University of Berlin. His literary debut is the satirical, critical novel "In the Land of Cockaigne." Based on the traditions of Balzac and Zola, he created portraits of Berlin's rich, who became owners of huge wealth as a result of various frauds. Mann creates the image of a country with such residents, a country where milky rivers flow and apples and pears fall down at people's feet. All this is in some measure borrowed from the folklore reality. This is how the provincial young man Andreas Zumsee sees the high society of the capital. The handsome poet is lucky. Holding him in her powerful arms during love moments, his financier wife gives him pieces of very valuable advice on how to succeed in stock markets...


30 October Lu Xun

 The broadcast is dedicated to the founder of modern Chinese literature Lu Xun (real name Zhou Shu Ren). Both his prose and journalistic literature as well as literary-historical works clearly demonstrate the development of Chinese literature. Lu Xun was born in Shaoxing. His father was a landlord and gave his land plots in rent. It freed the family from many life problems, that is, the Zhou family lived a comfortable life. Lu Xun first studied at Naval Academy in Jiangnan, then at the School of Mining and Railways. Here he studied several foreign languages, English, German, French, and got acquainted with natural sciences — physics, chemistry, biology —  developing his mental abilities. Of course, this knowledge wasn't sufficient, and Lu Xun started to educate himself...

23 October Hervé Bazin

The broadcast is dedicated to the famous French writer and great proponent of realistic prose Hervé Bazin. He is considered to be the most read writer of the 1950s to 1980s. He was also a well-known public figure, a fighter for peace, and had been the Chairman of the Goncourt Academy since 1973. All of this shows the great importance he had in the literary life of France. Bazin was born in an  aristocratic family, which was proud of its ancestors, among whom there were eminent lawyers, clergymen, scientists, soldiers, even a bishop and an academician. His father was a lawyer, worked at the Catholic University, and saw his son as a lawyer. Herve first studied at a Catholic gymnasium, then, at his parents' will, in the faculty of law of the university, but soon left it. The reason was his conflict with his parents, who did not accept their son's literary inclinations...


16 October George Bernard Shaw

The broadcast is dedicated to the English playwright, founder of the social drama of the 20th century, the novelist and public figure, Nobel prize winner George Bernard Shaw. Some of his plays such as "The Apple Cart," "Heartbreak House," "Saint Joan," "Too True to Be Good" express universal ideas that are still relevant today. Interesting is the fact that Show's dramaturgy that was not easily accepted on English stages received a world-wide acclaim and became one of the central phenomena of the literature of the 19th to the first half of the 20th century.

09 October 20th-Century Czech Literature

The broadcast is dedicated to the Czech literature of the 20th century, for which the 1920s were a difficult and controversial period associated with aesthetic views. This was accompanied by heated ideological debates. A large role was played by the literary group "Devetsil" founded in Brno in 1923. The group members considered themselves Marxists and tried to make innovations in art. The Surrealists became successors of Poetism and published a manifesto based on the works of André Breton and of French Surrealists...


02 October Johannes Becher

The broadcast is dedicated to German poet, prose writer, playwright, art critic, state and public figure Johannes Becher. Living outside his homeland for a decade, he continued creating numerous works in different genres. After returning to Germany in 1945, he continued his wide-scale cultural activities with a fresh enthusiasm: numerous poetic series, 300 sonnets, poems in prose, plays, articles on literary criticism, radio programs. And in the center of all of this it was the life, fate, struggles and hope of the ordinary human being that interested Becher.


25 September Miguel Hernández

The broadcast is dedicated to the famous Spanish poet Miguel Hernández. In 1931, in the hope of a big success, Miguel arrived in the capital without a penny in his pocket.  An interview with the shepherd poet and some poems by him appeared in the best journals of the capital. But he didn't succeed in finding a job.  In order to provide his essential needs, he returned to his village. However, the Madrid period was very effective: he got acquainted with modern Spanish poetry and strengthened his interest in the Spanish poet Góngora. The very first collection of Hernández, published in 1933 under the title "The Expert on the Moon," bears the influence of Góngora, whose poetry left a striking impression on the self-taught poet...


18 September Virginia Woolf

The broadcast is dedicated to the master of impressionist prose, literary critic, theorist of modernism Virginia Woolf, who opened a new stage in the history of English literature. German literary critic and art historian Erich Auerbach compared her with such great writers as Dante, Shakespeare, Flaubert, and Proust. Wolf became famous especially for her novels "Mrs. Dalloway" and "To the Lighthouse" as well as a number of articles of literary criticism. Her works enriched the psychological prose of modern times.


11 September Seán O'Casey

The broadcast is dedicated to the Irish playwright and novelist Seán O'Casey. Due to poor eyesight, he never went to school and learned to read and write on his own. He wrote his first plays in the 1920s. The play "The Shadow of a Gunman" was followed by "Juno and the Paycock" and "The Plough and the Stars." All the three plays are dedicated to the national liberation struggle of the Irish people. In all these works, the most important thing is the depiction of the heroic spirit of most insignificant and humble people. 


04 September Bertolt Brecht

The broadcast is dedicated to German writer Bertold Brecht, poet, novelist, playwright, art theorist, founder of "epic theater," who spent most of his life in exile. During his short life, he managed to leave a number of valuable works such as the plays "Life of Galileo," "The Good Person of Szechwan," "The Threepenny Opera," "Mother Courage and Her Children," "The Days of the Commune," as well as the prose work "Threepenny Novel" and a number of poems.

31 July Anna Seghers

The German writer and political figure Anna Seghers was born in Mainz, in a bourgeois family. Her first stories appeared in the middle of the 1920s, and in the first story, "Grubetsch," she clearly reflected the reality. In the novel "Die Ziegler," she presented the tragic fate of a small man. The suffering of the Ziegler family of artisans has a direct connection to the German bourgeois reality of that time. Seghers centers her attention not only on the victims of social injustice but also on those who fight against it.


24 July Ezra Pound

The broadcast is dedicated to the Anglo-American poetry school of Imagism and especially to one of its founders, poet, literary theorist and critic Ezra Pound.  His work presents the modern American poetry because, as a literary critic and editor of journals, also as a compiler of anthologies, he played a great role in the development and spread of the modern American and European literature.


17 July Herbert Wells

Herbert Wells, a science fiction writer, master of social and philosophical fiction, biologist by profession and Doctor of Biology, is an author of many famous novels, scientific studies, manuals, and various interesting books.  It is a well-known fact that scientific and technical progress is in the center of his entire work. But the writer was firmly convinced that technical progress cannot make humans happy, and in his works, Wells made interesting juxtapositions between capacities of science and reason, and described world cataclysms, the cruelty of soldiers, and the  conquest of colonies. In the early 20th century, he foresaw the birth of many great scientific discoveries related to the development of the universe and interplanetary communication.

10 July Franz Kafka, "The Castle"

The broadcast is dedicated to the famous novel  by Franz Kafka. Written in 1922, this novel arouses great interest with its mysteriousness and unexpected solutions today also. In its basis is the deep contradiction between an individual and the society. K. is like Josef K. of the novel "The Trial" but here the human's dissatisfaction with social customs and with the state laws is more emphasized.
