Harem is the first novella of prolific 19th century Armenian writer, Hakob Melik Hakobian, better known as Raffi. First published in 1874 in the Armenian language, Harem is based loosely on events following the Battle of Krtsanisi in Tbilisi in 1795, along with Raffi’s own experiences living in Iran. The narrative evocatively brings to life events at once sensual, dark, and conspiratorial in and around the Royal Palace of the Crown Prince of Persia, where the most interesting things happen at night.
