Poem Podcast from the Poetry Translation Centre

Karin Karakaşlı’s pain can be deeply felt in most of her poems. However alongside this we encounter an enormous amount of love for the geography she lives in, especially the city of Istanbul. Karakaşlı has an almost synergetic relationship with this city, as we can see in this
poem ‘Galata’ – with the history embedded in every stone, every
building and every landscape.

The poem is about the poet's love of a medieval stone tower in Istanbul, Turkey.
