Buddenbrooks by Thomas Mann
"For a long time I have been considering adding two new shelves - big-and-beautiful, governed by War and Peace and big-and-boredomful, governed by Middlemarch. Sadly, and to my great surprise, the Budenbrooks will have to reside on the latter shelf..." Read more of this review »

Buddenbrooks by Thomas Mann
"A superior soap opera. Superior, only because the characters occupy positions of influence in their society and therefore they appear to be important. The book succeeds in repeatedly making us aware of how stifled the lives of these enormously pri..." Read more of this review »

Nâzım Hikmet
“Akrep gibisin kardeşim,
korkak bir karanlık içindesin akrep gibi.
Serçe gibisin kardeşim,
serçenin telaşı içindesin.
Midye gibisin kardeşim,
midye gibi kapalı, rahat.
Ve sönmüş bir yanardağ ağzı gibi korkunçsun, kardeşim.
Bir değil,
beş değil,
yüz milyonlarlasın maalesef.
Koyun gibisin kardeşim,
gocuklu celep kaldırınca sopasını
sürüye katılıverirsin hemen
ve âdeta mağrur, koşarsın salhaneye.
Dünyanın en tuhaf mahlukusun yani,
hani şu derya içre olup
deryayı bilmiyen balıktan da tuhaf.
Ve bu dünyada, bu zulüm
senin sayende.
Ve açsak, yorgunsak, alkan içindeysek eğer
ve hâlâ şarabımızı vermek için üzüm gibi eziliyorsak
kabahat senin,
— demeğe de dilim varmıyor ama —
kabahatın çoğu senin, canım kardeşim!”
Nâzım Hikmet
