Hovhannes Tumanyan (February 19, 1869 - March 23, 1923), is considered to be one of the greatest Armenian poets and writers. His work was mostly written in tragic, sometimes humorous form, as in this title, often centering on the harsh lives of villagers in the Lori region.

Tumanyans inspiration for his writing came considerably from his parents. He was born in the village of Dsegh in the Province of Lori, Armenia. With his father was an offspring of an Armenian princely family of Tumanian (branch of the Mamikonians) and the villages priest and his mother an avid storyteller with a particular interest in fables, Tumanyan had incorporated many of the themes from his mothers stories and his fathers preachings into his writings.

Tumanyan is usually regarded in Armenian circles as "All-Armenian poet". He earned this title when the Catholicos of Armenia had ordered that Armenian refugees from the west not enter certain areas of his church and house, since he is considered to be "The Catholicos of all Armenians". Tumanyan in response decried that decision claiming that the refugees could seek relief in the Catholicos quarters under order of "The Poet of all Armenians".
