Misak Metsarents Wikipedia
Misak Metsarents (Armenian: Միսաք Մեծարենց, January, 1886; Pingian village, Vilayet of Kharpert - July 5, 1908; Constantinople, Ottoman Empire) was a leading Western Armenian poet.
Misak Metsarents was born as Misak Metsadourian in the Pingian village of Vilayet of Kharpert, near Agn. In 1894, he moved with his family to Sepastia, where he attended the Aramian School. Until 1902, he attended the Anatolia Boarding School in Marzvan. From 1902-1905, he attended the Central School in Constantinople. However, tuberculosis forced him to leave his education. The poor poet died July 4, 1908. At the age of 22, the poet enriched Armenian poetry with his lyrical and genuine masterpieces. Misak Metsarents managed to publish in his lifetime two volumes of poetry: “Dziadzan”(Rainbow) (1907) and “Nor dagher” (1907.)
This page is deemed a "stub" due to the short lived life that the poet had. He did all that he could during his years. A lot of his poems are about his despair and sadness of his inevitable death which was approaching way too soon. He will never be forgotten as one of Armenia's famous poets.
