Here's a little fragment from the diary: "23.03.1938 Tumanyan is the type of a real Armenian, an obraz. Tumanyan - he is my wise people, he sings in the blbule’s language, weeping about our hardships. ... Of all the poets I know, Tumanyan is more internationalist and humanist and that is why he is great, I can prove and sign what I say. "
