Aeolian Visions / Versions is a collection of more than 70 literary works, including poetry, short fiction, essays, and author interviews, translated from Turkish to English. All of the works were translated during the annual Cunda Workshop for Translators of Turkish Literature. This exceptionally rich collection reflects the crosscurrents of modern and contemporary Turkish poetry and literature and includes many fresh, exciting, and experimental works, resulting from innovative collaborations between translators and authors and the translators themselves. Designed for academic courses as well as individual reading, the book is the new and essential reader of translated Turkish literature.
