Letters & Sounds

İlhan Berk

Letters & Sounds is a multi-voiced selection of some of İlhan Berk’s finest love poems, elegies and lyric prose. Brought into English by poet-translator George Messo, these poems dance and sing with the energy and experimental daring of their dazzling Turkish originals.

‘Poets of our time in any language ignore Berk’s poem—its treasure trove—at their own peril.’ MURAT NEMET-NEJAT

‘One of Turkish poetry’s most distinctive and necessary voices.’ WORLD LITERATURE TODAY
