Poetry. Translation. Middle Eastern Studies. The only U.S. anthology to date to track the develpment of one of the great poetic traditions of our time. Nemet-Nejat offers an introduction to modern and contemporary Turkish poetry, until now largely unknown in the West. "We ignore such work at our own peril: we're in another world, and Murat Nemet-Nejat welcomes us to it"—Ammiel Alcalay.
