    Book details


Offers a much-needed guide to the vast, underexplored territory of modern Turkish literature. Azade Seyhan situates the Turkish novel in relation to such influences as the poetic and oral traditions of Ottoman Islamic culture, the early Turkish Republic, and Western Romantic and Enlightenment thought. She demonstrates that the evolution of the Turkish novel is inseparable from that of the Turkish state.

"[O]ccasions to call a study a landmark tend to be rare . . . [Seyhan's volume] without any doubt deserves this predicate. It not only "offers a much-needed guide to the vast, underexplored territory of modern Turkish literature" . . . but is actually the first one to do so comprehensively and on an academic level in a western language since the publication of Bombaci's Storia [and] is the very first of its kind to appear in English. . . . The author is excellently equipped for this project. [Her approach] is an excellent way to appeal to non-specialists and to make Turkish literature "readable" for them. . . . The book is full of inspiring and useful insights. [I] use the book in class [and] recommend it both to students of Middle Eastern literature and of World Literature, both beginners and advanced."--Stephan Guth, Middle Eastern Literatures
