The original title of the book: The Age of Beloveds: Love and the Beloved in Early Modern Ottoman and European Culture and Society
"The argument is cogent and welcome for its investigation of a rarely-treated topic in a broad context using nontraditional sources." --Ali Anooshahr, "Comitatus""["The Age of the Beloveds"] contributes significantly to the now growing recognition of the multiculturalism of the Mediterranean. . . . The analysis . . . has a refreshing tartness to it." --L.R.N. Ashley, "BIBLIOTHEQUE D'HUMANISME & RENAISSANCE""This book ... challenges European historians to broaden their view and include the Ottoman Empire (and beyond?) in their understanding of such quintessentially European things as 'the Renaissance' and 'mannerism.'... Their argument is multifaceted, disarming, well written, and full of novel connections and cogent examples." --Robert Dankoff, "Speculum""[A] fascinating and challenging interpretation of Ottoman poetry as a window into sexual-social relations in the East and West. . . . [B]y providing English translations of significant Ottoman poetry for the first time, [Andrews and Kalpakli] have done a major service for literary critics of the early modern period. Their explication of the texts is masterful and convincing." --Jonathan Grant, "History, Reviews of New Books""[T]ruly a unique and remarkable achievement. Its subject . . . is . . . of great cultural and scientific importance. . . . Each of the book's eleven chapters is a marvel of conciseness and good writing. . . . Readers will have their horizons broadened in a way they would have thought impossible. . . . It is should be read by all interested in social history and its ramifications." --Alan D. Corre," Digest of Middle East Studies"""The Age of Beloveds "ventures compelling parallels between western Europe and the Ottoman Empire. . . . Even without the wide-ranging insights intelligently argues in this book, its presentation of . . . other narratives by Nev'izade Atayi, as well as writings by such poets as Ishak Celebi, Mirek'I Tabib, Hayali Bey, and Azizi Misri, will surely insure its influence in the field." --Mary Ellen Lamb," Studies in English Literature, 1500-1900""Curious readers will have been enticed by the illustrations and already noticed how the central chapters offer contextualized readings of Ottoman court poetry and illustrate key themes and their links to Renaissance culture in Italy, France, and England. . . . [T]he authors offer brilliant close readings of "gazels" by Baki and Hayali that show us how to read such works and appreciate the heteroglossic interplay which makes Ottoman court poetry so fascinating and beyond summary here." --Gerald Maclean, "Times Literary Supplement"""The Age of Beloveds" is a unique and powerful book. There is nothing remotely like this out there and yet as one reads it one is struck by the dire need for the sort of basic information and insights it provides about the other half of the Mediterranean during the early modern period."--Maria Rosa Menocal, author of "Shards of Love: Exile and the Origins of the Lyric""The Age of Beloveds is a treasure and a masterpiece. With breathtakingly extensive original research, it is beautifully written, in a style both inviting and impressive. It is the fruit of a lifetime's project to add Ottoman literature to the canons of world literature."--Victoria Holbrook, author of The Unreadable Shores of Love: Turkish Modernity and Mystic Romance"The Age of Beloveds is a unique and powerful book. There is nothing remotely like this out there and yet as one reads it one is struck by the dire need for the sort of basic information and insights it provides about the other half of the Mediterranean during the early modern period."--Maria Rosa Menocal, author of Shards of Love: Exile and the Origins of the Lyric"A wonderful and brave book that is so fun to read. . . . An astonishing account of love and the beloved where they intersect with sex, spirituality, politics and power. . . . Amazing!"--Orhan Pamuk, author of the novels Snow and My Name Is Red
