rabihalameddine: Last year: Today is Sunday by Nazim Hikmet

kenan_sharpe: ...today, not so much. It makes sense that at the height of Nazım Hikmet, Rukeyser, Neruda, Ritsos, etc. or during the movement poetry of the 1960s that claims on poetry would be overblown. But to still treat poetry like a religion today is like the desperate attempt of a church

jyhadscientist: Nâzım Hikmet and Deniz Gezmiş of course inspired a generation, the issue is however they wrote poems that inspired a generation of revolutionaries, and in doing so ultimately paid for it with their lives. The issue is that poets are making poems for folk who like poems.

si_belle187: I mean, you must take living so seriously that even at seventy, for example, you'll plant olive trees— and not for your children, either, but because although you fear death you don't believe it, because living, I mean, weighs heavier. Nazım Hikmet

callingyasemin: The only thing that helps at the moment is reading Nazim Hikmet's "Yasamaya Dair". -Bu dünya soğuyacak günün birinde.- I'm grateful to be reminded of that fact. I'm generously reminded that we'll end.

theme_from_MASH: pretty messed up that a great deal of Turkey’s foremost writers (Nâzım Hikmet, Orhan Kemal, Yaşar Kemal, Sabahattin Ali) were jailed/exiled for being communists + are now paraded around by the very government that suppressed them for their “literary” merits

theme_from_MASH: like how could you read something like “Human Landscapes From My Country” or literally any of Nâzım Hikmet’s shorter poetry + try to divorce the political content from the “literary” lol

EasternExpress4: Nazım Hikmet was a Communist. He was jailed during the times of İsmet İnönü because he was accused of organizing a coup within the army. When he was released, he escaped to Soviet Russia. Nowadays, it's mostly forgotten that Nazım Hikmet was jailed by Kemalists themselves. +

EasternExpress4: It's to cool to share poems of Marxist and atheist Nazım Hikmet to criticize Erdogan (or secretly insult Erdogan and his conservative and nationalist supporters) but it doesn't change the fact that Mustafa Kemal and Nazım Hikmet have differences more than similarities.

mr_yong_tau_foo: the poem by nazim hikmet ran (which i only know because of Suzerain) comes to mind: "You are my enslavement and my freedom You are my flesh burning like a raw summer night You are my country"
