About the Author
Michael Pifer is lecturer in Armenian language and literature at the University of Michigan. His publications include the coedited volume An Armenian Mediterranean: Words and Worlds in Motion.
"A highly original work that reconceptualizes Anatolian literature not just as a combination of different national literatures, but as shared modes of (re)interpretation articulated in different linguistic registers."--Sergio La Porta, California State University, Fresno

"This manuscript is a remarkable achievement and will immediately become a go-to reference for medieval Anatolian literature. A joy to read."--Alison Vacca, University of Tennessee Knoxville

"Kindred Voices is a work full of marvelous 'chimeric couplings' in which we witness medieval Anatolia through a prism never seen before."--Rebecca Ruth Gould, author of Writers and Rebels: The Literature of Insurgency in the Caucasus

"Kindred Voices adds Armenian to an exciting new trend in Medieval Studies: reading literary texts not as foundational pieces of a national tradition but as witnesses of the lively exchange across languages, cultures, and religions."--Sharon Kinoshita, Co-founder and co-director, The Mediterranean Seminar

"Kindred Voices is a beautifully written, provocative, and masterful evaluation of the importance of poetry in medieval Anatolia. It brims with original ideas, and will continue to reach and inspire a broad readership in the years to come."--Selim Kuru, University of Washington
