About this product
- DescriptionOguz Atay's 1971 vel The Disconnected [Tutunamayanlar] is distinctly unique, but it can also be read as a response to Joyce's Ulysses - a singular and a very Turkish response. Any review of The Disconnected begins with the humble ackwledgement of its vast frame of reference, the multiplicity of the voices and styles that it presents, and finally its resistance to being translated into ather language. What makes it interesting for the readers of modern literature, however, is t only the variety of idiosyncrasies and verbal conventions, but also its critical attitude towards Turkey's project of modernity. Drawing on Bakhtin's theory of the vel, this study traces the echoes of carnival laughter in The Disconnected while establishing Atay's work as a world text in dialogue with the masters of the can: Shakespeare, Goethe, Dostoevsky, Joyce, and others.
