Lettere turche tra i Balcani e il Bosforo
Il pendolo di Yahya Kemal e Orhan Pamuk
The author summons here two eminent figures of the modern and contemporary scenario of the Turkish literature: Yahya Kemal (Skopje, 1884/85-Istanbul, 1958) and Orhan Pamuk (Istanbul, 1952). A poet and a Nobel Prize who never met are here encouraged to converse through their verses and their inventions, at once elaborate and incisive. Moving through a recalled landscape, between the Bosforo and the Balcans, and, following the natural extension of those coasts, until Venice, the author intends to propose an encounter-clash of poetics built on various connections, across a scenario, both natural and emotional, very dear and familiar to the friend Gianclaudio Macchiarella.
