Melancholy and iHüzün/i in Orhan Pamuk's - Project Muse

Thus after beginning with three chapters about himself and the rooms in which he grew up, Pamuk moves to descriptions of the streets, reflections on the dominant colors of Istanbul, comments on the unique atmosphere in the areas adjacent to the Bosphorus, and an account of the life and works of Antoine-Ignace Melling, who published a book of Bosphorus landscapes almost a hundred and fifty years before Pamuk was born.There are also character sketches, some of them about family members such as his grandmother, others describing the lives of writers and painters whom Pamuk never met.


The result is a truly marvelous book, which is at once a portrait of the author, of his city, and of his society, present and past.
