de Didem Havlioglu
Sobre o livro
The early modern Ottoman poet Mihri Hatun (1460-1515) succeeded in drawing considerable renown during a time when few women were accepted into the male-dominated intellectual circles. Her poetry collection is among the earliest bodies of women's writing in the Middle East. With this volume, Havliog-lu investigates the factors that allowed Hatun to survive and thrive.
