Раньше неосознанно обходила стороной восточную литературу, в том числе турецких авторов. И это произведение было читать довольно непривычно: другой мир, традиции, устои. Но какое же оно прекрасное... Кажется, я прожила в Стамбуле все эти годы вместе с главным героем и успела влюбиться в город и его окрестности, ни разу там не побывав. Очень советую, кто до сих пор не. P.s. На ливлибе уже добавила другие его произведения, надеюсь, будет так же волшебно:) #орханпамук #моистранныемысли #vsco #vscocam #турция #turkish #turkey #asia #книги #books #literature #grunge #soft #tea #lifestyle #cozy #warm #likesforlikes #followforfollow #likes #follow

There was a time I attributed too much importance / success of a relationship to physical attraction or what some may call - ‘Chemistry’. Instant attraction, similar tastes, laughter and never ending banter. But then you know those were the fair weather days. Over time and with the entry of good people who knocked at my door with genuine intent, and with the unfolding of tough times that taught me who the ‘real’ ones are, I’ve realised that good chemistry is so much beyond the body or a night of passion, nothing like candy floss or a flurry of compliments. Yes it’s not half as good as those books tell you, but it’s real and as I age I discover, real is the purest form of ‘good’. • • #quotes #beautaplin #poet #verse #good #real #literature #deep #feels #emotion #love

"I once heard a story about a girl who requested something so vile from her paramour that he told her family and they had her hauled off to a sanatorium. I don’t know what deviant pleasure she asked for, though I desperately wish I did. What magical thing could you want so badly they take you away from the known world for wanting it?"⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Carmen Maria Machado, “The Husband Stitch” from Her Body and Other Parties // Art: Jesse Mockrin, Love and Friendship⠀ #carmenmariamachado #husband #thehusbandstitch #shortstory #fiction #literature #deviant #pleasure #fineart #painting #art #erotic #erotica #eroticart #love #femsex #rosemarycummings #deardear #clitlit

17-JAN-2018:  Dr Geoffrey Philip Nash delivers lecture in AMU #aligarh , #january 17: Dr Geoffrey Philip Nash (Associate Professor, University of Sunderland, UK) today delivered a guest lecture on ‘From Post-Colonialism to Islamophobia: An Academic’s Research Trajectory’ at the Arts Faculty Lounge of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU). The talk was a part of a lecture series organised by the #department of English, #amu . He delineated an alternative perspective on Britain's late imperial period by looking at the lives and the writings of the men who chose to defy the conventional social and political attitudes of the British ruling classes towards the Near East. Dr Nash pointed out that from the Greek revolt in 1830 to the fall of Caliphate in 1924; a different kind of voice was heard that was anti-imperialist. He elaborated W S Blunt's enthusiasm for the Egyptian reformers of the Azhar, David Urquhart’s passionate belief in his ideals, E G Browne's zeal for the Persian revolution and Marmaduke Pickthall's advocacy of the cause of the Young Turks into their #political and historical context and into the context of their writings. Quoting from #original sources, Dr Nash spoke on how travel writing and cultural history in the context of international politics deepens the understanding of Orientalism. He provided valuable insights on which those seeking today to re-order the Middle East could usefully reflect. Dr Nash further complimented Edward Said’s ‘Orientalism’ for introducing a new discourse on #arabs and Muslims. “As #english turned into a #global language, more and people became multilingual leading to useful translation work all over the world,” said Dr Nash adding that translation of popular literature, religious texts and other documents brought cultures closer to each other. While reading an extract from Leila Aboulela's novel ‘Translator’, which is a story of a young Muslim Sudanese widow and her relationship with a secular Scottish Middle Eastern scholar, Dr Nash said that the book #shows #muslim experience in globalised world and that there is a need of such #literature to deconstruct #stereotypes that prevail in #west .
