Book Review: Nazim Hikmet'in son yillari
I find Nazim Hikmet's story a very romantic and sad one. He died far from this county with a great love againt his motherland.Eventhough his country punished him with prisons and exile for many years he expressed his aspiration to the very last moment.
He had romantic affairs with few women, both Turkish and Soviet, he loved, he was loved.
Zekeriya Sertel, exiled Turkish journalist, was with him during his last days in Soviet Union. Read this if you are interested in last days of this great poet&lover.His hopes, disappoitments and confusion against the Soviet system..
