Sait Faik Abasýyanýk


If someone makes me think that '' '' is so a human being, then I'm forced to say that he is far beyond every single person that reads this.

How pity that Sait Faik is almost forgotten ! I don't know any Turkish writer who could EXPRESS his culture in such a beautufil but simple words. He was well ahead of his time and since the cultural revolution in Turkey failed or abondened , he was simply rejected , like Mustafa Kemal.. . His people now praise Arabesk Culture , even Turk Government praise Arabesk Poet Nazim Hikmet , gave several third grade street singers "Artist of State" (whatever it does mean ??) status.. ALL STARTS WITH LOVING SOMEONE... AND ISTANBUL.. YOU WILL DIE ONE DAY , YOUR NAME FORGOTTEN , UNABLE TO WRITE ANYTHING.. AND WILL DIE.. LONG LIVE LITERATURE !!!
