summary
For the people of the Ottoman Empire, lyrical poetry was a most prized literary tradition, and people from all walks of life aspired to be poets. This collection offers free verse translations of 75 lyric poems from the mid-fourteenth to the early twentieth century, along with the Ottoman Turkish texts and, new to this expanded edition, photographs of printed, lithographed, and hand-written Ottoman script versions of several of the texts. Biographies of the poets and background information on Ottoman history and literature round out the volume.
