Description - Istanbul by Ates Orga
From Jason and the Argonauts to the fans of Galatasaray in their stadium,
both visitors to and residents of Istanbul are immortalised in this collection.
The exquisite love poetry of the Ottomans, the epic sagas of the Turkish
nationalists, the epigrams of sultans, and the romantic couplets of visiting
diplomats are contrasted in thematic chapters.

Featuring: W B Yeats, Sergei Esenin, Nazim Hikmet, Charles Kingsley, Lord Byron, Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, Bedri Rahmi Eyuboglu, Orhan Veli, Vita Sackville-West and Suleyman the Magnificent.
