What's new in the poetry pages

May 14, 1997.
A large collection from the book SELECTED POEMS OF FAZIL HUSNU DAGLARCA has been added to the pages today. It contains translations of Daglarca's poems by Talat Sait Halman and an introduction to Daglarca's poetry by Yasar Nabi Nayir. The site feautures Turkish originals and English translations of poems standing side by side.

Even though words cannot express my appreciation for the efforts Mr. Zahir Antia put into bringing this collection to the pages, I will put a simple thank you note here.
