Translated from Turkish by George Messo

 

Madrigals is a collection of poems by Turkey's leading experimental poet, an 89-year-old still at the height of his powers when this book appeared. With spare texts, sometimes with only a few words to a page, this collection has a powerful meditative quality, even as the words trail away into silence and the whiteness of the page. The cover features one of the poet's own paintings. The author died in 2008, at the age of 90.
