Toaster History Of Armenia
historyofarmenia Photo: Worlds shortest poem by Aram Saroyan.

This poem was written by Aram Saroyan, an Armenian-American poet, novelist, biographer, memoirist and playwright. Saroyan’s four-legged “m” has been cited in the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s shortest poem. The meaning of it has been subject to discussion. Some have called it: “a closeup of an alphabet being born” - Bob Grumman. Its sells still in the process of dividing, ‘m’ and the ‘n’, not quit separated. It is also a pun on “I am”, implying the formation of consciousness itself.

Aram Saroyan was also the author of the most controversial poem that simply read: “lighght” in the center of a blank page. This poem was selected by George Plimpton to be featured in The American Literary Anthology and received a $500 cash award from the National Endowment for the Arts, resulting in a huge controversy involving the US government. Read all about the controversy by following the link: How seven letters managed to freak out an entire nation (poetryfoundation.org/article/179985). Recently there has been a resurgence of interest in his work, evidenced by the publication in 2007 of several previous collections reissued together as Complete Minimal Poems.

His father William Saroyan was also a famous author.
