'Dirse Khan came home. He called to his wife, "Come here, luck of my head, throne of my house, my sugar-melon, my honey-melon."'

'great sorrow came over his wife; her black almond eyes filled with bloody tears'

'the boy gave the bull a merciless punch on the forehead and the bull went sliding on his rump'

'Dirse Khan took up his strong bow, strung with wolf-sinew'

'you will not die of this wound. The flowers of the mountain with your mother's milk will be salve for it.'

'Water has looked on the face

I really enjoyed this collection of 12 Oghuz-Turkic epic poems, partly because they are similar to some of the Central Asian and Karakalpak heroic "dastans." It is a must read for people interested in Turkic and Central Asian literature and culture, especially since so little of it is available in English. The epics in this book are even enjoyable stories.

Türk mitolojisi bakımından çok değerli. Yurt kurma, intikam ve aile üzerine kurulu bütün hikayeler.


Arap ve Türk islamı arasında müthiş farklar var. Son zamanlarda bu farklar araplaşma politikaları yüzünden iyice benzeşmeye başladı. Türk maalesef islamla özünü kaybetmeye başlamıştır. Dede Korkut hikayeleri bu yüzden hüzünlüdür. Türklüğün son anlarıymış gibi... Arkasından gelen yüzyıllarca sürecek islam hükümdarlığı altında benliğini kaybetmiş Türk... Atatürk ile yeniden benliğini kazanmış Türk..

Dede Korkut ve hikayeleri için söylenecek söz yok. Türk masalcılığının temel taşlarındandır, en önemli eseridir. Bu puan elbette hikayeler için değil yayınevi ve eseri yayına hazırlayan Orhan Şaik Gökyay için.

Piyasada çok sayıda Dede Korkut hikayeleri kitabı var. Bu kitabı seçmeden önce epey araştırma yaptım; maksadım bütün eserleri eksiksiz bir biçimde bünyesinde toplayan, tek bir kitaptan oluşan (her hikayeyi ayrı ayrı kitaplara bölmeyen), hikayeleri sadeleştirmeyen, kısaltmayan ve sansürleme

'Het boek van Dede Korkoet' is een verzameling van een twaalftal verhalen over de Ogoezen, een Turkse nomadenstam die in de middeleeuwen in de Kaukasus verbleven. De verhalen beschrijven allen een stoere, ruwe cultuur, waarbij tentenkampen, jacht en plundering een grote rol spelen en waarbij de 'ongelovige' Georgiërs de aartsvijand vormen. Hun koning Sjeukli komt dan ook in diverse verhalen aan zijn eind. De Ogoezen maken vervolgens zijn burcht met de grond gelijk en bouwen een moskee. Dit gebeu ...more

Tabii ki bir derleme bu ve Türkçeleştirilmiş bir çalışma. Türkçeleştiren kişinin biraz fazla muhafazakar bir kesimden geldiği kanısındayım. Yine de eski Türkçe'yi anlayabileceğimiz şekilde güzel bir çalışma olmuş.

Çoğunlukla şiir olarak anlatılan eski Türk hikayeleri bunlar.

O eski kullanımlar kalıplar kelimeleri görmek beni çok çok mutlu etti. Sanırım dile ilgi duy

An interesting assortment of heroic folktales from Central Asia, the same yet different from the tales Europeans know better. The simple stories force me to ask a lot of questions about the influence of Islam, Greek myth, Persian, and nomadic cultures on the storyteller. Despite their exaggerated might, all the characters get in over their heads and get bailed out at the last minute by the full force of the Seljuk princes.

A fascinating collection of stories. Maybe a bit too foreign for the average reader, but I would recommend to all who enjoy world literature, epic poetry, or just like to read something different.

A great collection of Turkish myths and folk tales. A fairy is raped. An ogre is so terrifying that camels piss blood and die at the very sight of his approach. Good times!

Lisede bu hikayelerele tanıştığım için derinden üzüldüğüm , fakat hiç tanımamış durumda olmadığım için mutluluk duyduğum bir başyapıt .

Recommends it for: those who are interested in Turks and their culture
Easily the best and most interesting epic fantasy about the Oghuz Turks.

I'm really glad I found this, got it from Scribes book shop with the last of my birthday voucher. I love mythology and ancient epics, but I had no idea this one even existed. These are the stories of the Oghuz Turks, a Muslim Mongol-like culture that were the ancestors of the Ottomans.

The most refreshing aspect of these stories are the powerful women. The women are just as battle-ready as the men, not afraid to stand up for themselves or to rescue their lovers if needed. The men are much as you'

Diese Geschichten haben mich so begeistert, "dass mir die Läuse aus dem Haar vor die Füße fielen". Die Bildsprache der Oghusen ist der Hammer! Zusammen mit der Handlung bereiten sie ein großes Lesevergnügen, da möchte man sich direkt sein "Kasilik-Pferd zwischen die Schenkel klemmen".
Der Übersetzer schafft es dabei, dass die Sprache der Erzählung zwar für uns durchaus komisch, aber nicht dämlich klingt.
Leider haben mir, trotz der Fußnoten und dem ausführlichen Anhang zu Hintergründen und Einor

Good to understand Central Asian tradition and cultures as well , even though the jihad seemed so present.

The stories of Dede Korkut are the epic history of the Oghuz Turks, who crossed the steppes of what Rory Stewart called "The Land In Between" ultimately to settle in Anatolia after several centuries, discarding their shamanist traditions and picking up Islam on the way. The original stories tell of battles between heroes and their traditional enemies, the Kipchak Turks, with the enemy changing along the way to Christianized tribal enemies. This English version is translated from a written late 1 ...more

Doğruya doğru, hikaye olarak anlatımı, heyecan, macera aman aman çok iyi değil. Daha çok döneme ait Türk örf ve adetlerini öğreten bir belgesel gibi düşünmek gerek. İslamiyet ile ilişkilendirilmesinde takvim olarak kafam basmasa da, içindeki pek çok öğe Cüneyt Arkın filmlerinde bol bol kullanıldığı için tanıdık. Allah, peygamber, dua, cennet, cehennemin cirit attığı Arap masallarının aksine bu Türk masalında cinsellik yok denecek kadar az. Basat’ın Tepegöz’ü Öldürdüğü Boyu’nda çobandan hamile ka ...more

So apparently the direst insult to an Oghuz Turk is to call him a "crazy pimp, son of a pimp." Clearly they never met Dolemite!
