Popular Turkish Love Lyrics and Folk Legends is the first illustrated anthology
of Turkish folk poetry and legends published in the United States. Talat Halman’s
eloquent, fluid telling of these engaging stories and his translations
of the love lyrics, accompanied by Zeki F?nd?kog?lu’s vibrant serigraphs,
serve as a marvelous introduction to the rich world of Turkish folktales and
lyrics.
This volume brings together three of the most beloved of Anatolian
tales and legends with the life stories and selected poems of four great
folk poets―Yunus Emre, Pir Sultan Abdal, Körog?lu, and Karacaog?lan. The
seven sections of the book come alive with images of striking beauty and
dramatic power by F?nd?kog?lu, a son of Anatolia. Each section features
four “visual experiences”―extraordinary in their delineation of nature and
human figures, teeming with moods stirring or sinister. They capture not
only the splendor of nature in Anatolia but also the quintessential spirit of
the legends and the lyrics. Cultural and literary historians as well as poetry
lovers will enjoy this stunning union of art and literature.
