Bound Together takes a new look at twentieth-century Turkey, asking what it will take for Turkish women and men to regain their lost freedoms, and what the Turkish case means for the prospects of freedom and democracy elsewhere. Contrasting the country’s field of poetry, where secularization was the joint work of pious and nonpious people, with that of the novel, this book inquires into the nature of western-nonwestern difference. Turkey’s poets were more fortunate than its novelists for two reasons. Poets were slightly better at developing the idea of the autonomy of art from politics. While piety was a marker of political identity everywhere, poets were better able than novelists to bracket political differences when assessing their peers as the country was bitterly polarized politically and as the century wore on. Second, and more important, poets of all stripes were more connected to each other than were novelists. Their greater ability to find and keep one another in coffeehouses and literary journals made it less likely for prospective cross-aisle partnerships to remain untested propositions.

Literature is an essential unit of a culture and social, political and historical changes in a society impact both culture, language, and particularly, literature. Although there are various languages in the world, literature is the main communication that connects people from different cultures and countries. Literature: Lingua Franca of Cultures, thus, is designed to depict the similarities between different cultures within similar issues and topics. To meet this purpose, the book contains thirteen chapters, each of which was designed to clarify, exemplify and interpret a specific theme, underscored by remarkable authors from different cultures. Within this scope, each chapter respectively presents a topic: diseases, male gaze, children, intimate relations, antagonists or protagonists, human nature, war and depression, parenthood, death and suicide, God and religion, geography and human, revenge, and alienation. In each chapter, notable literary texts from different authors were analyzed to foreground the thematic and contextual similarities. This book, hence, provides readers different perspectives and interpretations to better internalize the common themes and messages of world classics. Although there are various studies of the remarkable senior academicians in the comparative literary field, hopefully, Literature: Lingua Franca of Cultures would contribute to this field both for the academicians and readers. Contents INTRODUCTION CHAPTER I: DISEASES CHAPTER II: MALE GAZE CHAPTER III: CHILDREN CHAPTER IV: INTIMATE RELATIONS CHAPTER V: ANTAGONISTS OR PROTAGONISTS CHAPTER VI: HUMAN NATURE CHAPTER VII: WAR AND DEPRESSION CHAPTER VIII: PARENTHOOD CHAPTER IX: DEATH AND SUICIDE CHAPTER X: GOD AND RELIGION CHAPTER XI: GEOGRAPHY AND HUMAN CHAPTER XII: REVENGE CHAPTER XIII: ALIENATION

This volume provides the most exhaustive and comprehensive treatment available of the Verb Second property, which has been a central topic in formal syntax for decades. While Verb Second has traditionally been considered a feature primarily of the Germanic languages, this book shows that it is much more widely attested cross-linguistically than previously thought, and explores the multiple empirical, theoretical, and experimental puzzles that remain in developing an account of the phenomenon. Uniquely, formal theoretical work appears alongside studies of psycholinguistics, language production, and language acquisition. The range of languages investigated is also broader than in previous work: while novel issues are explored through the lens of the more familiar Germanic data, chapters also cover Verb Second effects in languages such as Armenian, Dinka, Tohono O'odham, and in the Celtic, Romance, and Slavonic families. The analyses have wide-ranging consequences for our understanding of the language faculty, and will be of interest to researchers and students from advanced undergraduate level upwards in the fields of syntax, historical linguistics, and language acquisition.

This Handbook provides a comprehensive overview of Turkish literature within both a local and global context. Across eight thematic sections a collection of subject experts use close readings of literature materials to provide a critical survey of the main issues and topics within the literature. The chapters provide analysis on a wide range of genres and text types, including novels, poetry, religious texts, and drama, with works studied ranging from the fourteenth century right up to the present day. Using such a historic scope allows the volume to be read across cultures and time, while simultaneously contextualizing and investigating how modern Turkish literature interacts with world literature, and finds its place within it. Collectively, the authors challenge the national literary historiography by replacing the Ottoman Turkish literature in the Anatolian civilizations with its plurality of cultures. They also seek to overcome the institutional and theoretical shortcomings within current study of such works, suggesting new approaches and methods for the study of Turkish literature. The Routledge Handbook on Turkish Literature marks a new departure in the reading and studying of Turkish literature. It will be a vital resource for those studying literature, Middle East studies, Turkish and Ottoman history, social sciences, and political science.

This book celebrates the bicentenary of Schleiermacher’s famous Berlin conference "On the Different Methods of Translating" (1813). It is the product of an international Call for Papers that welcomed scholars from many international universities, inviting them to discuss and illuminate the theoretical and practical reception of a text that is not only arguably canonical for the history and theory of translation, but which has moreover never ceased to be present both in theoretical and applied Translation Studies and remains a mandatory part of translator training. A further reason for initiating this project was the fact that the German philosopher and theologian Friedrich Schleiermacher, though often cited in Translation Studies up to the present day, was never studied in terms of his real impact on different domains of translation, literature and culture.

Trilingual Joyce is a detailed comparative study of James Joyce’s personal involvement in both French and Italian translations of the iconic 1928 text Anna Livia Plurabelle, which later became the eighth chapter of Finnegans Wake. Considered to be completely untranslatable at the time of its publication, the translation of Anna Livia Plurabelle represented a fascinating challenge to Joyce, who collaborated in experimental renderings of the text, first into French and later into Italian. Patrick O’Neill’s Trilingual Joyce is the first comparative study of all three of the Anna Livia Plurabelle variations, and fills a long-standing gap in Joyce studies. O’Neill, an Irish-born professor who has written widely on texts in translation, also discusses in detail the avant-guard novelist and playwright Samuel Beckett’s contribution as a young man to the French rendering of Anna Livia Plurabelle.

This book is a psychoanalytic observation of five children’s existential encounters in their ordinary life at the nursery. It is among the first within psychosocial literature to go beyond adult experiences and explore the existential in young children’s lives as it plays out in their everydayness in symbolic and sensory articulations and in relationship with others; including with the author as someone who arrived looking for it. The author offers analysis in the form of a writing inquiry into meaning, by means of an on-going movement between the self and the other, the interior and the exterior, and psychoanalytic and existential-phenomenological ideas. This is illustrated through a kaleidoscopic account of May, Nadia, Edward, Baba and Eilidhs’ encounters with nothingness, strangeness, ontological insecurity, death and selfhood as these emerged in the time they spent with the author embodying different forms – from concrete objects to dreams – exemplifying an attunement to existential ubiquity. With its relational ground, this work suggests the potential for adults – including researchers, therapists, trainees, educators and parents – to attune to their own existential encounters as a path to understanding those of children.
