ATTİLA İLHAN’IN TÜRK ŞİİR’İNDEKİ YERİ

ATTİLA İLHAN’I HATIRLAMAK

Yazan: Harun YÖNDEM
Attila İlhan’ı önce şiirlerinden tanıdım. Üniversitede asistan (araştırma görevlisi) olan bir ağabeyin elinde şairin bir kitabını görmüştüm.
Sonra kitapçılarda  birçok eseriyle karşılaştım. “Hangi” başlığıyla yazılan kitaplardı bunlar: Hangi Batı, Hangi Sol, Hangi Atatürk, Hangi Sağ  aklımda kalanlar. Bunların bazılarını okudum da. Sonra romanlarıyla tanıştım: Kurtlar Sofrası, Bıçağın Ucu, Fena Halde Leman ve Dersaadet’te Sabah Ezanları.

CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION FOR A TEACHER: HAYDAR GÖFER


I had a ball visiting my home country Turkey last month- mostly the schools where I had spent perhaps the happiest times of my life.  What prompted the trip was the end of the centennial and the beginning of the 101st birthday celebration of one of my favorite teachers at Tarsus American College (TAC), Haydar Göfer. I had missed the beginning of the 100th year in February of last year.

A GIANT PASSES ON – ŞÜKRÜ SERVER AYA

Obituary
“Ben giderim adım kalır
Dostlar beni hatırlasın
Düğün olur bayram gelir
Dostlar beni hatırlasın
Can kafeste durmaz uçar
Dünya bir han konan göçer
Ay dolanır yıllar geçer
Dostlar beni hatırlasın
Can bedenden ayrılacak
Tütmez baca yanmaz ocak
Selam olsun kucak kucak”

– A poem by Aşık Veysel (1894 – 1973)

Tenhalarda sevişilmiş bir aşktan ve
Koynunda sabahlanmış bir sevgilinin kaleminden çokça..
