Kırmızı Saçlı Kadın ½ من حياته تمامًا بعد لقائه بذات الشعر الأحمر وحين يشكو إليها فقدان الأب تواجهه بقولها عليك أن تجد لنفسك أباً غيرە فكل واحد هنا في هذا البلد له أكثر من أب، مثل الدولة الأب، الأب المقدس، الباشا الأب، أبو المافيا هنا لا أحد يستطيع الاستمرار في العيش بلا أب فمن هي تلك المرأة الغامضة ذات الشعر الأحمر؟تحمل الرواية صورًا متعدّدة ل. Life follows mythSo it doesThe story draws upon two ancient myths Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex in which the son kills the father unknowingly and Ferdawsi’s Rustam and Sohrab taken from The Persian Book of Kings Shahnameh which is a reversal of Oedipus Rex in that it is the father who kills the son again unknowingly and the string of events that lead to both deaths and the conseuences the murderers face for their sui generis crimes The two contradictory yet complementing myths become the parameters in which the story of the eponymous Red Haired Woman and her accidental lover is setThis is by no means a retelling or adaptation of the either myth; uite the contrary Here the protagonists are very conscious of the power of the afore mentioned myth study it research it try to steer clear of it and yet see events unfold in their lives that ultimately come to a point where the myth is no longer an ancient story tucked away in books but being played right before their eyes against their will Starting from his previous novel The Strangeness in My Mind there has been a fundamental shift in Pamuk's style and the subject he deals with He abandoned the elite and middle classes and their identity problems to tell the stories of Turkey’s in particular Istanbul’s underprivileged people the have nots In addition to that he chronicled the changes being wrought in Istanbul as a result of unplanned turbo ubanisation and the fast disappearance of old arts and crafts in the age of consumerist capitalism and its compulsions The Red Haired Woman continues in the same vein It’s about the forgotten people with their now dispensable arts and now obsolete political rivalries and the fundamental geographical and social changes that were taking place in his beloved Istanbul during the transitory period of the last uarter of the 20th century and by extension in TurkeyIn his previous novel he told the story of a family of rural boza sellers but in this novel it’s about the old and dying art of manual well digging I was particularly interested in that part and found it fascinating perhaps because I could relate to some of it I am old enough to remember the dying days of well digging and functioning wells when I was growing up as a kid back in my village; a few hazy memories of the well that watered vegetables in the backyard of our country house before it had to be closed up and filled with earth when elders decided to install electrical water pumps to draw up groundwater That was in Pakistan and this story is from Turkey but it was pretty much the same in both places The wells haven't totally disappeared You can still find them in remote areas around sparsely populated hamlets where old pastoral and agrarian life continues to this dayPamuk spends a lot of pages to describe the finer details of well digging through the story of one Master Mehmut the master Well digger who takes our main protagonist Cem the narrator of two third of the story as his apprentice Things happen that cause Cem to abandon his master and run away and begin a new life in the heart of Istanbul Then we have a fast paced narrative that covers decades before the turn of events bring him back to confront his old and buried secret Cem fully aware of the guiding myths of his life tries to maneuver away from them but as fate would have it he’s unable to do soThe book is designed unevenly and I felt the middle part of the story was rushed as though the writer didn't want it to go beyond 250 printed pages or couldn't wait to get to the end of the story to reconnect with the events in the early years of Cem I also felt that Pamuk tried too hard to interpret the myths for us He kind of over explained them to the point that we already knew what's going to happen in the end That was in my opinion a weak spot and a big one All in all it's a good book but not a great one despite Pamuk's attempt to give it a solid intellectual foundation by incorporating literary mythsTRANSLATION AND ITS DISCONTENTSI am a fan of Orhan Pamuk but I have to admit that both this one as well as his previous novel The Strangeness are uite prosaic and conventionally told The lyrical intense and rich style of his older pre Nobel novels seems to have disappeared Some reviewers have suggested it might have to do with the new translator one Ekin Oklap after Maureen Freely the erstwhile translator of his top rated books was let go But I don’t uite think this is the case You can easily recognise and love Pamuk’s style in Snow The Black Book The Museum of Innocence The White Castle and My Name is Red The first three are translated by Maureen Freely but the last two are translated by Victoria Holbrook and Erdağ Göknar respectively and Göknar’s one translation happens to be the best of all This means that what we know of Pamuk’s style and voice isn’t reliant on the translations of Maureen Freely alone If three translators between themselves could maintain his style in five books there is no reason why Ekin Oklap would not have been able to do the same Since I don’t know any Turkish to compare with the originals I have to deduce from the above that it’s not really Ekin Oklap’s fault but Pamuk’s own style has undergone a change in his recent writings I’ve argued elsewhere that he might be running out of steam which isn’t an uncommon phenomenon even with good writers You can detect a writer’s literary weariness when you read Maruez’s swansong Memories of My Melancholy Whores; and not surprisingly being as scrupulous as he was he didn’t write anything during the last 20 years of his life It might just be time for Pamuk to sit back and think hard about what he is going to write next or whether he’s going to write anything at allOctober '18 Download Ì PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ¼ Orhan Pamuk

Orhan Pamuk ¼ 0 Summary في أحدث رواياته، يأخذنا أورهان باموق إلى بلدة صغيرة على بعد 30 ميل من إسطنبول فيعود بنا إلى الماضي القريب في ثمانينيات القرن العشرين حيث الانقلابات والأحداث السياسية المشتعلة، من خلال علاقة حفار آبار ومساعدە الصغيرفي ذات الشعر الأحمر يبحث البطل عن بديل للأب الذي اختفى، فتتطور علاقته مع حفار الآبار قبل أن يتعرض لحادث يُغير. 375 stars In the late 1980s I travelled to Turkey with my soon to be husband We had just finished university had little money and were in search of adventure It was certainly an interesting trip and we have often talked about going back to Turkey but I am also aware that traveling in a country when you don't know the language and have no real means of getting to know people isn't really a great way to get to know a country This was my first book by Orhan Pamuk But I feel that the two days spent reading The Red Haired Woman gave me a intimate look at Turkey in the late 1980s than my trip of almost 30 years ago The narrator of this novel recounts the summer when he was 16 years old working as an apprentice to a well digger in a small town outside of Istanbul While getting to know the master well digger the narrator also becomes fascinated by an older red haired woman Move forward thirty years and the apprentice is a wealthy businessman in a much changed Turkey but he is not freed from what happened the summer when he was 16 years old Reading The Red Haired Woman feels like a rich multi layered experience Pamuk delves into Turkey's political situation mixing in history and mythology There's also a bit of a mystery and some moral complexity This wasn't uite a 4 star read because it didn't always hold my attention but I did mostly enjoy reading it and especially I appreciated the opportunity for what felt like an intimate view of contemporary Turkey Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for an opportunity to read an advance copy
