[Benim Adım Kırmızı] E–pub à Orhan Pamuk

The heroine if we can call her that too self centred and manipulative Maybe the author intended them to be like that but it does lose reader interestI was also rather put off by the amount of lust bubbling on each page Apart Speak Now Against the Day: The Generation Before the Civil Rights Movement in the South from normal sex including homosexuality there is incest paedophilia bestialityetishism simmering just beneath the surface Young boys are regularly presented as objects of lust Men kiss each other passionately even when one is about to kill the other I have heard that Turkey was the centre of deviant sexual practices during Ottoman times so maybe it is a true picture but it did not vibe with me Edit to add a person has commented that this paragraph is likely to give the impression that I am attacking LGBT people and on reading it again I Bongology: n. The Art of Creating 35 of the World's Most Bongtastic Marijuana Ingestion Devices find that there is some substance to the accusation So I have edited it suitably The whole idea of putting deviant in uotes was to highlight the dubiousness of the label However it was the lust that disturbed me and not the sexual preference Maybe it is my personal problem that is why I have noted it down subjectivelySoadding the negatives and positives I will goor three stars During nine snowy cold winter days in the Design the Life You Love: A Guide to Thinking About Your Life Playfully and with Optimism fabulous city of Istanbul the capital of the Ottoman Empire at its height in the reign of Sultan Murat 111 there occurred a brutal murder not the last one the year 1591 At the bottom of an abandoned well the mangled body of Elegant Effendi nicknamed Red a miniaturist who had workedor the Sultan is Shortcut: How Analogies Reveal Connections, Spark Innovation, and Sell Our Greatest Ideas found but not before the corpse tells his sad story How the victim was lured by a person which was thought a closeriend with promises of riches and savagely attacked Strangely The Spirit Is Contented And spirit is contented and no anger now Just looking After You Drop Them Off: A Parent's Guide to Student Ministry forward to the new world paradise in heaven He was a talented painter along with Stork Olive and Butterfly under old Master Osman who gave them all their aliases taught the boys everything they know including beatings when mistakes were made all surprisingly love their master of 25 years in a workshopunded by the revered sovereign Colorful paintings of bright glorious colors of horses trees clouds important people slaughter on many battlefields Share, Retweet, Repeat: Get Your Message Read and Spread fables enchanting gardens under the exotic illuminating moon with lovers looking tenderly at each other Red was uneasy about a secret project he worked on because of theoreign Venetian styled illustrations Minimalist Baker's Everyday Cooking: 101 Entirely Plant-based, Mostly Gluten-Free, Easy and Delicious Recipes forbidden by Islam many believe later when completed these small paintings will be put in a book to be viewed only by the ruler and aew trusted associates Black Kara a clerk secretary and occasional warrior hired by pashas ighting endless wars against the Persians returns to his hometown of Istanbul after twelve long years A ailed romance cause him much suffering the reason or his volunteered exile The beauty Shekure his twelve long years A She Weeps Each Time You're Born failed romance cause him much suffering the reasonor his volunteered exile The beauty Shekure his s Enishte daughter was constantly on his mind the lonely days spent thinking about his cousin wanderings through the vast hot deserts and reezing temperatures in the dizzy elevations of towering mountains sleeping in pungent tents in isolated locations The rejection of a marriage proposal by his own uncle or his love and her wedding to another a Seven Days, Seven Dinners famous soldier he can neverorget But her husband has been missing A Northern Light forour years she with two small children living at her If You're Missing Baby Jesus: A True Story that Embraces the Spirit of Christmas father s house and the army has come back A second chanceor happiness if only Black can win her affections Still he has very strong competition rom ierce Hasan younger brother of Shekure s Anne Perrys Christmas Crimes (Christmas Stories, fearless husband Esther a shrewd Jewish peddler matchmaker and messengeror clandestine sweethearts she knows everything about everyone having walked over all the city s streets begins bringing letters to Shekure and Black and Hasan too Rumors that the killer is a miniaturist sweeps the city Black had been one in his youth with the three remaining master painters before uitting And the angry Sultan wants the murderer caught in three days or torture will commence on the suspects every miniaturist.

S old Islamic traditions he venerates and the modern and distinctly oreign style he despises Such a choice is not made easily as the artists themselves discover The Frankish method celebrates the individuation of the artist it prizes the signature of the artist as much as the commissioner of the image This reverence White Water for the artist as much asor the piece of art proves to be a great temptation to the men involved and leads directly to the murderThe structure however also allows or a second discussion not about art but about writing on art As much as this is a novel concerning visual images it is also a novel about ekphrasis the verbal description of art Ekphrasis has the effect of slowing down a narrative of interrupting it Thus in Homer s Illiad the great battle scene is suddenly punctured by a lengthy description of Achilles shield Pamuk plays with this model repeatedly When the image of the horse described several times in the novel is given a voice of its own the narrative is not interrupted but rather the description of the image becomes the narrative And over as the image speaks it refutes the undamental principles underlying Master Osman s devotion to Islamic traditions of art Pamuk can hardly resist the joke this is a novel about art in which not a single image appears except the map at the beginning and the ones we create in our minds as we imagine the images described But are we creating an image of the ideal horse the horse of God or one we can actually touch taste and smell This is a antastic book by Nobel Prize winner Orhan Pamuk which explores the relationship between art and religion ad between imagery and idolatry Set in the 16th century we are transported into an Istanbul of the Ottoman empire with a murder mystery told in the voices of the characters and sometimes these are drawings in the books or just concepts that inhabit the story Its primary characters eel very real and the buildup to the big reveal at the end makes the book a real page turner I think that the story told here is still than relevant to our world of today given the problems stemming Sleep with the Fishes from reading religious texts wordor word and building violent systems of repression or terror based on individual interpretations of those readings Unfortunately some things have not evolved enough in the last 400 yearsA must read I am in two minds about this bookObviously it is an important work It showcases the miniaturist tradition of the Islamic world and uses the cloistered world of miniaturists to explore the difference in philosophies between the East and the West It was all the interesting to me Because I Have Been Fascinated By This Difference Ever Since I have been The Apache Wars: The Hunt for Geronimo, the Apache Kid, and the Captive Boy Who Started theLongest War in American History fascinated by this difference ever since began viewing paintings with serious interest In the East perspective does not exist the paintinglows seamlessy over space and time whereas in the West especially since the Renaissance the painting is the reproduction of a particular moment in time we are not talking of abstractions here The miniaturist paints the world as God sees it he does not sign the painting nor does he have an individual style because he is unimportant He continues painting in act he paints better after he inevitably goes blind The Frankish painters in contrast paint the world as we see it which is blasphemy according to some of the miniaturistsI was captivated by the sweep of the book as well as the way it was presented short chapters rom the viewpoint of a different character as though we were looking at a book of miniatures tells a different as though we were looking at a book of miniatures which tells a different on each page Moreover it is a murder mystery in which the victims as well as the murderer directly speak to the reader It bears a certain resemblance to The Name of the Rose in this regard although Eco s book is much powerful according to meComing to the minuses the writing is cumbersome and a task to wade through I do not know if this is a problem with Pamuk s writing or the translation The characters are A World on Fire flat the protagonist Black is too weak and cowardly. Oscópico al terrenoronterizo entre el arte la religión el amor el sexo y el poder Orhan Pamuk nació en Estambul Turuía en 1952 Premio Nobel de Literatura 2006 Ha realizado estudios de aruitectura y periodismo y ha pasado largas temporadas en Estados Unidos en las universidades de Iowa y Columbia Su éxito mundial se desencadenó a partir de los elogios ue John Updike dedicó a la novela El castillo blanco Desde entonces ha obtenido numerosos reconocimientos internacionales el premio al Mejor Libro Extranjero en Francia el premio Grinzane Cavour en Italia y el This book is as much about art as it is a historical novel First the novel A tale of miniaturist painters in Istanbul during the late 1500 s The deceased master s daughter is in a religious and political limbo her soldier husband has been missing or our years but with no body and no witnesses to his death she can t get a divorce and move on death she can t get a divorce and move on her life She wants to ind a new husband and a 100 ways to Fight the Flab - and still have wine and chocolate fatheror her two young boys and get away The Oxford New Greek Dictionary from the amorous intentions of her husband s brother And there s a murder mysteryEnter a man called Black an administrator of sorts who has returned to town after twelve years in distant lands He still carries a torchor the beautiful widow The Cello Suites : J.S. Bach, Pablo Casals, and the search for a Baroque masterpiece from his days as a youth Can heind her The New Job Security father s killer keep the brother in law at bay help her get a legal divorce and win her hand in marriage Along the way we have blended into the text what are really mini essays about horses dogs in the Koran what it s like to be a murderer Satan the path of a counterfeit coin etcAt least half of this lengthy work is about art I say lengthy because the 500 page paperback I read was tiny type so this is a 700 or 800 page book in normalont Miniaturist painting was imported into the Ottoman Empire The Day Fidel Died: Cuba in the Age of Raúl, Obama, and the Rolling Stones (A Vintage Short) from Persia Most of the painting was done as pictures in books and to illustrate the borders of pages of books accompanied by elaborate calligraphy Think of the Irish monks manuscripts such as the Book of Kells Ottoman miniaturist painting was highly stylized Pictures were drawnrom the viewpoint of Allah The New Odyssey: The Story of Europe's Refugee Crisis from the top of a minaret and did not use what the West thinks of as true perspective Armies lined up symmetrically in battle scenes horses always had the sameoreleg raised a The Jumbee finger placed in a mouth always represented surprise In accordance with religious concerns about idolatryaces were generic not individualized Who would dare place an identifiable individual at the center of a painting Man can copy only Allah can create The painter tried to portray the ideal horse or chair as Allah created it think Plato s ideal chair not the individual variant before them Is individuality expressed by a traditional miniaturist painter style or a law Does it offend God Compare all this to the European masters at the time such as da Vinci Michelangelo Raphael the Turks called them time such as da Vinci Michelangelo Raphael the Turks called them Venetians So a lot of the book is about East meets West in the art world All in all an excellent book rom the Nobel Prize winning Pamuk The story kept my interest and I enjoyed learning about Ottoman art even when the sections where the miniaturists talked about the philosophy behind painting got repetitive at times Generally when a book starts out with a chapter entitled I Am A Corpse you know it s going to be pretty good The novel is set up so that each chapter introduces a different narrator including but not limited to Black Black s uncle Shekure a dog a horse the murderer and various artists in the workshop This type of structure Simple Art of Greatness for a mystery novel isn t new Wilkie Collinsor example employed it several times most notably in The Moonstone and it is an effective way to structure a story so as to hide the whodunit Each character only tells as much as he she or it knows and in Pamuk s novel even the murderer hides his or her identityThe structure in My Name Is Red though is less designed to sustain suspense and to allow room or the various philosophical discussions concerning the purpose of art and perhaps importantly the distinctions between Islamic states and Western Europe The Frankish mode of painting particularly of portraiture to glorify the subject to paint him or her in terms of hisher earthly wealth and power to distribute such an image openly as a show of control to demonstrate the creative abilities of the artist is at the center of these debates and discussions Black s uncle inds such images alluring and ascinating while others see them as abhorent Master Osman or example sees himself as being A Burglar's Guide to the City forced to choose between the centurie. El Sultán ha pedido a los artistas más reputados del país un gran libro ue celebre las glorias de su reino Su tarea será iluminar esa obra al estilo europeo Pero como el arteigurativo puede ser considerado una ofensa al Islam el encargo se convierte a todas luces en una proposición peligrosa La élite gobernante no debe conocer el alcance ni la naturaleza de ese proyecto y el pánico estalla cuando uno de los miniaturistas desaparece La única pista para resolver el misterio ¿uizá un crimen reside en las miniaturas inacabadas Me llamo rojo es un viaje caleid.
