9780892553495: Human Landscapes from My Country: An Epic Novel in Verse (Karen and Michael Braziller Books)

The complete English translation of Nazim Hikmet's epic masterwork.

Written during the Second World War while Hikmet was serving a thirteen-year sentence as a political prisoner, his verse-novel uses cinematic techniques to tell the story of the emergence of secular, modern Turkey by focusing on the always-entertaining stories of sundry characters from all walks of life. As his vignettes flash before our eyes at movie-like speed, it becomes clear he is also telling the turbulent story of the twentieth century itself and the ongoing struggle between tradition, which trusts in God, and modernity, which entrusts the world to human hands.

About the Author:

Nazim Hikmet is considered Turkey's greatest modern poet. For his Communist views, he was imprisoned in Turkey and his work was banned. His poetry has been translated into more than fifty languages. He won the World Peace Prize (the USSR's equivalent of the Nobel) in 1950. He died in 1963 in exile.

Review:

The content of this major work is highly moving. Highly recommended.

[Hikmet's] special gift is to show that every human life is a story, and a compelling one.

human life is a story, and a compelling one.

Hikmet takes the traditional oral epic form and adapts it to the modern condition by using elements of drama, film and the novel. ... Mutlu Konuk Blasing [the translator], who recently wrote an excellent biography of Hikmet, does a miraculous job here. ... Human Landscapes spreads across 17,000 iron-forged lines, but it is extraordinarily efficient, never wasting a single word. The whole thing effectively amounts to a compendium of Anatolia's collective memories, traumas, hopes and fears at the time of the Second World War. --William Armstrong (09/19/2013)"

One of the great works of modern literature. --Raymond Carver "
