A Brave New Quest: 100 Modern Turkish Poems is a selection of modern Turkish poetry that conveys in faithful translations the full spectrum of Turkish humor, intellectual exploration, love, politics, and social justice. It contains stirring selections representing the revolutionary romanticism of Nazim Hikmet and the passionate wisdom of Fazil Husnu Daglarca-as well as the rebellious spirit of the social realists and the diversity of many of the young poets.
