Through the Window

A cycle of love poems, Through the Window was first published in Istanbul in a bilingual edition translated by Nezih Onur. Tracking the arc of feeling with an accuracy as fine as dry point, these are poems that insisted on being written and insist to be read.

With 23 sections in all, Through the Window moves from longing to luxurious sensuality to quarrel to abandon and back again hitting many of the notes of the classic love poem. These poems have an airy, almost ephemeral feeling an off-cuff emotional declaration. They are defined by a delicacy of feeling, and of language.” Miriam Sagan, The Santa Fe New Mexican
