A Turkish poetry manifesto, 1941

Read it. http://criticalflame.org/garip-a-turkish-poetry-manifesto-1941/


P. S. I got this from Neil P. and he pointed out this excerpt:

“The new aesthetics will only be achieved with new ways and vehicles. There is nothing new or artistic in squeezing certain ideologies into already accepted forms. The structures should be changed completely. In order to get away from the prosaic and suffocating influence of literatures that have for centuries shaped and ruled out our will and aesthetics, we must reject everything those literatures have taught us. If possible, we should discard the language itself that limits our creative activity.”
