Posted by mamta on Friday, February 21, 2014 (06:35:55)

Another month and I am back with another round of staff picks. I have always found imagist poems fascinating mainly because of the clarity and precision of words and expression.

News in Poetry Selected poems of Ilhan Berk
Posted by Ozymandias on Thursday, November 27, 2014 (00:51:23)

Two major impulses can be identified in republican era Turkish poetry: The explosion of the “First New” movement of the Garip (strange) poets, and the implosion of the “Second New” movement. Until well into the republican period, Turkish poetry was dominated by arcane Ottoman conventions full of rigid, ornate rules, but the modernizing language reforms of the 1920s and 1930s would inevitably be felt in poetry.
