Summary
  • Global Perspectives on Orhan Pamuk's: Existentialism and Politics is an interdisciplinary collection of essays that captivates Pamuk's multifaceted approach to ordinary Turkish life. The contributors of this volume come from an array of international perspectives that place the reading of Pamuk into dynamic arenas of new interpretation and reflection in interdisciplinary academic fields. The themes of existentialism and politics are further examined in the illuminating essays through such issues as: nationalism, religion/secularity, traditional/modern, exile/home, and comparative readings to such writers as Mohsin Hamid, Naguib Mahfouz, Italo Svevo, and Amitav Ghosh. This is an indispensable collection for understanding Pamuk, global literature, and crucial issues in today's world
  • "This book explores both existential and political themes in Orhan Pamuk's work, and investigates the apparent contradictions in a contemporary political arena where Islam and democracy are often seen as opposing and irreconcilable terms. Existential themes delve into literary nuances in Pamuk that discuss love, happiness, suffering, memory, and death"--
