Broken Masculinities: Solitude, Alienation, and Frustration in Turkish Literature after 1970

October 18, 2016

Broken Masculinities by Cimen Gunay-Erkol, assistant professor of Turkish Literature at Ozyegin University in Istanbul, addresses authoritarianism, power and masculinity in literature written after the 1971 coup in Turkey. It not only offers a panorama of Turkey’s 1968 generation but also provides clues to understanding foundations of Turkey’s now reinforced Islamic image, current political deadlocks and ongoing struggle with democratization.
