Nazim Hikmet, famous Turkish poet

Add comment

Nazim Hikmet or Nazim Hikmet Ran (1902-1963) is the most widely recognized among all Turkish poets and one of the greatest poets of the twentieth century and his works have been translated into several languages.

A pioneer of the free flowing verse style in Turkish poetry, Nazim Hikmet was oft persecuted in his homeland for his revolutionary and rebellious writings.

Nazim Hikmet was a poet and a dramatist par excellence and though he stirred controversy all throughout his life, he belongs to that rare breed of visionary artists who wrote for a cause. That his works were heavily censored and he was often prosecuted bears ample testimony to the profound influence they exerted over the Turkish people.
