    About "Orhan Pamuk"

      • Orhan Pamuk

        Orhan Pamuk was born in Istanbul in 1952 and grew up in a large family similar to those which he describes in his novels Cevdet Bey and His Sons and The Black Book, in the wealthy westernised district of Nisantasi As he writes in his autobiographical book Istanbul, from his childhood until the age of 22 he devoted himself largely to painting and dreamed of becoming an artist After graduating from the secular American Robert College in Istanbul, he studied architecture at Istanbul Technical University for three years, but abandoned the course when he gave up his ambition to become an architect and artist He went on to graduate in journalism from Istanbul University, but never worked as a journalist At the age of 23 Pamuk decided to become a novelist, and giving up everything else retreated into his flat and began to write.His first novel Cevdet Bey and His Sons was published seven years later in 1982 The novel is the story of three generations of a wealthy Istanbul family living in Nisantasi, Pamuk s own home district The novel was awarded both the Orhan Kemal and Milliyet literary prizes The following year Pamuk published his novel The Silent House, which in French translation won the 1991 Prix de la d couverte europ ene The White Castle 1985 about the frictions and friendship between a Venetian slave and an Ottoman scholar was published in English and many other languages from 1990 onwards, bringing Pamuk his first international fame The same year Pamuk went to America, where he was a visiting scholar at Columbia University in New York from 1985 to 1988 It was there that he wrote most of his novel The Black Book, in which the streets, past, chemistry and texture of Istanbul are described through the story of a lawyer seeking his missing wife This novel was published in Turkey in 1990, and the French translation won the Prix France Culture The Black Book enlarged Pamuk s fame both in Turkey and internationally as an author at once popular and experimental, and able to write about past and present with the same intensity In 1991 Pamuk s daughter R ya was born That year saw the production of a film Hidden Face, whose script by Pamuk was based on a one page story in The Black Book.His novel The New Life, about young university students influenced by a mysterious book, was published in Turkey in 1994 and became one of the most widely read books in Turkish literature My Name Is Red, about Ottoman and Persian artists and their ways of seeing and portraying the non western world, told through a love story and family story, was published in 1998 This novel won the French Prix du meilleur livre tranger, the Italian Grinzane Cavour 2002 and the International IMPAC Dublin literary award 2003 From the mid 1990s Pamuk took a critical stance towards the Turkish state in articles about human rights and freedom of thought, although he took little interest in politics Snow, which he describes as my first and last political novel was published in 2002 In this book set in the small city of Kars in northeastern Turkey he experimented with a new type of political novel , telling the story of violence and tension between political Islamists, soldiers, secularists, and Kurdish and Turkish nationalists Snow was selected as one of the best 100 books of 2004 by The New York Times In 1999 a selection of his articles on literature and culture written for newspapers and magazines in Turkey and abroad, together with a selection of writings from his private notebooks, was published under the title Other Colours Pamuk s most recent book, Istanbul, is a poetical work that is hard to classify, combining the author s early memoirs up to the age of 22, and an essay about the city of Istanbul, illustrated with photographs from his own album, and pictures by western painters and Turkish photographers.


    1. This unique art book is a tour of an actual museum, in Istanbul, which Nobel Prize winning author Orhan Pamuk created as a repository of physical objects described the chapters in his 2009 novel The Museum of Innocence.I adore house museums, There are great ones in St. Petersburg-- Blok's and Pushkin's, Dostoyevsky's, Akhmatova's, and in Moscow--Tolstoy's, --the Russians are very fond of the. I've been to George Sand's and Victor Hugo's in Paris. Also love little museums and cabinets of curiosit [...]

    2. Masumiyet Müzesi'ni sevmemiş, ayrıntılar içinde boğulduğum için yarıda bırakmıştım. O kitabı ne kadar sevmediysem bu -inanılmaz bir titizlikle ve sanatsal ve entellektüel keyifle hazırlanan- kataloğu/kitabı da tam tersine, çok sevdim. Masumiyet Müzesi'ni okumuş olsun ya da olmasın, Orhan Pamuk'u sevsin ya da sevmesin, her edebiyat/fotoğraf/tarih/sanatseverin bu çalışmaya evinde, kütüphanesinde yer açması gerektiğine inanıyorum.

    3. Orhan Pamuk has created a museum catalog based on his novel about a man who collects objects that his beloved has touched. The character wanted to build a museum for these objects, but died before he could complete his vision.So now the novelist who wrote The Museum of Innocence has built the museum--and he has produced another book, the catalog for that museum, called The Innocence of Objects.Inside the museum, Pamuk has built a box for almost every chapter in the novel, filling each boxes with [...]

    4. müzeyi gezme imkanı olmayanlar için müzenin basılı hali gibi olmuş. ben hatıraların masumiyeti'ni okurken bahsettiği kutuları -müzeyi dün gezmiş olmama rağmen- daha iyi hatırlayabilmek için bakmak amaçlı yanıma aldım bu kitabı, ama bir süre sonra okuduğum kitabı unutup buna daldığımı fark edince okuduklarıma ekledim. ve hatıraların masumiyeti'nin ortasında kutular üzerinden anlatım bittiği için bu da ondan daha erken bitti. müzeden ufak tefek farklılıklar [...]

    5. Bir kaç gündür Schubert dinleyip bir müze kataloğu okuyorum. Entellikte tavan yaptığımın resmidir :) Orhan Pamuk hakkında bir çok şey söyleyebilirsiniz ama Sezar'ın hakkını da vermeli hançerden önce ya da sonra. Geçenlerde bir meslektaşımın roman yazmakla ilgili şöyle dediğini duydum: "Roman yazmak zor iş değildir; mesela Masumiyet Müzesi gibi bir romanı yazabilirsiniz; önemli olan bir klasik yazmaktır, onu yazmak zordur." (Sessizce ortamdan uzaklaştım tabii ki y [...]

    7. كان حظي طيباً بإقتناء هذا الكتاب في زيارتي الأخيرة لإسطمبول من مكتبة روبنسون كروزو الشهيرة ذات الأرضية الخشبية العتيقة والإحساس الحميم الذي يعرفه عشاق الكتب والمكتبات لدى دخولهم مكتبة قديمة وضيقة وذات تاريخ متراكم.كعادته، يقوم الشيخ أورهان باموك بإعادة تشكيل عالمه حول فع [...]

    8. kitabı almadan önce "müze hakkında" diye biliyordum. fazlası aklıma gelmezdi. aldıktan sonra da. ilk kısım bitip de bölümler üstünden dönmeye başlayınca kitap, o zaman anlaşıldı. müzenin yapılış süreci ve yıllarca akılda nasıl yoğrulduğundan öte, masumiyet müzesi'ni tamamlayıcı, ve hatta "genişletici" mahiyette bir kitap; bölümler arasında yer yer görünen 1 ya da 2 sayfalık metinler ve kutuların alt kısmında yer alan kemal'den (kimisi romandan alıntı) [...]

    9. Two men, Kemal and Orhan, conspires to turn Time into Space. That is the way Kemal describes his idea of a museum. A personal museum which he and Orhan believes to be better in capturing the ordinary, everyday stories of individuals which are richer, more humane and much more joyful. As opposed to the large national museums which construct the historical narratives of a society, community, team, nation, state, tribe, company or species. These two men, the first is the fictional character created [...]

    10. The glossy art book told how the Museum of Innocence (Turkish: Masumiyet Muzesi) in Çukurcuma, Istanbul, was remodeled from an 1897 house post-1894 earthquake to a house inhabited by the fictitious Keskin family between 1974-84 in the novel by the same name and same author. Inside the Keskin house, in Istanbul, and during traveling, Kemal the novel protagonist (closely identified with Orhan Pamuk) collected over twenty years artifacts and memorabilia intimately connected with the female charact [...]

    11. i love it when fact and fiction blur. Orhan Pamuk wrote a novel called "The Museum of innocence," in which the main character creates a museum (to say more would entail spoilers). Having written about this place, Pamuk decided to build it. So this is a fictional museum documenting a person who never existed, except as a character in a novel by Pamuk. The photos illustrate this place beautifully, and Pamuk's essays on how the museum was constructed are fascinating. Moreover, having this book at h [...]

    12. Muzeul inocenței - muzeul, și Muzeul inocenței - romanul, au fost concepute concomitent. Una e să dedici un muzeu amintirilor, alta e să-l dedici amintirilor imaginare - prin mijlocirea lui ficțiunea invadează spațiul realului și-l face mai real. Plăcut să vizitezi în felul ăsta Muzeul Inocenței pentru a treia oară: 1. carte, 2. muzeu, 3. catalog. Din cele trei cartea și muzeul sunt experiențele recomandate. Catalogul e ca ceașca pentru cafea - util, dar neesențial.

    13. I love real museums. I love imaginary museums. So how much more would I love real imaginary museums? This is an odd book (in the good sense). But though Pamuk states that you needn't have read the Museum of Innocence novel to appreciate this, I somehow felt it would have added much to the experience.

    14. I read this book after finishing the author's novel " The Museum of Innocence " and I believe I made the right decision in this regards having this book strongly related to the novel and to the museum itself. All three, museum, this book, the novel, are all related and reflect the life stories of the author Orhan Pamuk and his beautiful city Istanbul along with the deep mutual melancholy and love between the author and city.The book is mainly a catalogue of the museum where as I said, reading th [...]

    15. Ama tıpkı müze olmasa da romanın kendi başına ayakta durup anlaşılabilmesi gibi; müze de roman olmadan kendi başına bakılıp hissedilebilecek bir yer. Müze, romanın bir resimlenmesi olmadığı gibi roman da müzenin bir açıklaması değildir. Başkalarını, kurduğumuz hayallere ortak etme ve inandırma yükü olmadığı zamanlarda, sanatsal ve edebi yaratıcılık coşkulu bir mutluluk halini alır. “Güzellik, aklın kendiliğinden bildiği şeyi, gözün dünyada yeniden [...]

    16. Orhan Pamuk'un favori yazarlarımdan biri olduğunu bir çok arkadaşım biliyor artık. Hakkında çok çeşitli tartışmalar çıkan Pamuk beni yalnızca yazarlık yanıyla ilgilendiriyor doğal olarak. Benim yoğunlaştığım, zamanımı harcadığım ve genelde zevk aldığım şey onun kitapları. Bu değerlendirmeyi bütün kitapları için yapabildiğimi ise söyleyemem. Cevdet Bey ve Oğulları'ndan başlayarak bütün yazarlık serüvenini izledim ama Kara Kitap'tan sonra bir duraklam [...]

    17. Turkish author Orhan Pamuk wrote a novel called "The Museum of Innocence", in which the main character created a museum to honor his lost love. Pamuk then created a museum in his hometown of Istanbul as a copy of the fictional museum. This book is the guide to the museum, complete with references to the novel. Replete with numerous pictures from the museum, Pamuk has certainly cornered the market on meta fiction by preparing this work. I confess that I'm now curious the read the novel.

    18. As a young writer, Pamuk considered the idea of writing a novel in the form of a museum catalog and began collecting stuff--the detritus of 20th century Istanbul haute-bourgeoisie life for his fictional characters. When he did write the book, it was in the form of a novel dictated by the fictional friend Kemal, but the impulse to collect, which features so much in that story, never left him, and was exacerbated by his exile and need to come to terms with his own family and the modern Turkish sta [...]

    19. The visit to the museum was a splendid break from the touristic ventures in Istanbul, a visual manifestation to a great piece of literature. Walking from Cihangir to Çukurcuma and gesturing to a passerby to complement what my digital map application has missed in locating the museum preluded to the very experience. The museum challenges that thin line between fiction and real by reversing the depiction process luring the viewer into a scopic euphoria. We've been debating how archeological sites [...]

    20. Orhan Pamuk's The Innocence of Objects demands that you view a collection of boxes not only for the elusive mystic of the objects they contain but also for the world they introduce. This world rejects linearity of experience. Instead, it embraces a less traditional form of storytelling, picking fragments of experience to translate into the tangible an essence of a first date, quirky relatives only mentioned in name, a birth, a first car. But mistake not the tangible of these curated boxes for an [...]

    21. A companion piece to the novel "The Innocence of Objects." Pamuk has created a museum in Istanbul called by the same name as his novel, and he has created boxes and dioramas of memories of himself and others growing up in Turkey. It's a fascinating project."I once wrote about a crown price who threw away all of his belongings so that he could be his true self, and retired to an abandoned hunting lodge to live alone with his dreams. The prince eventually came to the painful realization that witho [...]

    22. Bel libro molto atipico. Il museo dell'innocenza è un romanzo (splendido) di Orhan Pamuk, il quale ha poi (o meglio concomitantemente, almeno nel concetto) realizzato un museo vero con oggetti appartenuti "davvero" a Fusun, la protagonista femminile del romanzo. In pratica è un museo vero nato da una storia inventata. Il libro è fotografico e narrativo insieme, e va letto ovviamente dopo aver letto il romanzo (e solo, altrettanto ovviamente, se questo è piaciuto molto). E' in qualche modo be [...]

    23. I have wanted to read Orhan Pamuk for a long time, and I think this was the wrong place to begin. This book serves as an explanation of sorts for his journey of creating a museum of objects that correlates to one of his books, and it follows a trajectory that did not really hold my interest. So, it's going back to the library. I do think this probably would be very fascinating for a diehard Pamuk reader.

    24. Yalnızca kendisi olabilmek için bütün eşyalarını atan ve bomboş bir kasırda tek başına rüyalarıyla yaşayan şehzadenin hikayesini bir keresinde yazmıştım.Sonunda şehzade eşyalar olmadan ne dünyanın ne de kendi hayatının bir anlamı olduğunu geç de olsa kederle anlamış.Demek ki, kalbimiz kırılmadan şeylerin sırrını anlamamıza imkan yoktur.Ve alçakgönüllülükle öğrenmemiz gereken en büyük sır da budur. Celal Salik.

    25. This is really a companion piece to "The Museum of Innocence" I liked the visuals here, and the blurred line between the fiction and reality. It is kind of like an Andy Kaufman performance where one is questioning what is contrived and what is actually there. I would suggest that it is an interesting support for the novel, but I do not think that I would have followed (or liked) this without the novel.

    26. I began the book and glided over the words and works and skipped around. But then I was really intrigued. I went back and started at the beginning and read and read. He built a museum and wrote a novel at the same time to support one another. They entwine! such arty depth of memory and feeling. superb.

    27. The photos of the boxes in the museum were so cool and I loved poring over them. Some of the stories accompanying them were interesting, but I was sort of bored by a lot of it. Now I need to visit the museum!

    28. As someone who has studied museums and worked in them for over a dozen years, I am always fascinated on how someone on the "outside" view them. Pamuk has made a museum for interesting reasons, from the heart, and I find it endearing. I can't wait to visit!
