Motherland Hotel : a novel by Yusuf Atılgan( Book )

46 editions published between 1973 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Zebercet, the last surviving member of a once prosperous Ottoman family, is the owner of the Motherland Hotel, a run-down establishment near the railroad station. A lonely, middle-aged introvert, his simple life is structured by daily administrative tasks and regular, routine sex with the hotel's maid. One day, a beautiful woman from the capital comes to spend the night, promising to return "next week," and suddenly Zebercet's insular, mechanical existence is dramatically and irrevocably changed. The mysterious woman's presence has tantalized him, and he begins to live his days in fevered anticipation of her return. But the week passes, and then another, and as his fantasies become more and more obsessive, Zebercet gradually loses his grip on reality. Motherland Hotel was hailed as the novel of the year when it was published in 1973, astonishing critics with its experimental style, its intense psychological depth and its audacious description of sexual obsession. Zebercet was compared to such memorable characters as Quentin Compson in Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury and Meursault in Albert Camus' The Stranger. While author Yusuf Atilgan had already achieved considerable literary fame, Motherland Hotel cemented his reputation as one of Turkey's premier modernists"--

Un hombre ocioso by Yusuf Atılgan( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Un hombre que se opone a todo, que se enfrenta a todo, que resiste a todo: un hombre ocioso. Ni tan siquiera tiene nombre. C.es como Yusuf Atilgan lo llama, así, escuetamente. C. no aguanta lo ordinario, lo monótono, las comodidades de la rutina, es superior a sus fuerzas. Hombre extraño y ansioso, desilusionado del amor, deambula por las calles de Estambul decidido a no sucumbir a las expectativas de la familia y de la sociedad.Publicada en 1959 y a menudo comparada con El extranjero de Albert Camus, Un hombre ocioso desafió los valores de la joven República de Turquía poniendo de manifiesto el sentido de alienación del hombre moderno. Yusuf Atilgan (1921-1989), uno de los maestros de la literatura contemporánea turca, se consagró con tan solo dos novelas El hombre ocioso y Hotel Madrepatria (1973), a las que hay que añadir algunos relatos y una tercera novela inacabada y publicada póstumamente.Gran lector de narrativa norteamericana, Atilgan introdujo en Turquía las técnicas más sofisticadas del modernismo occidental conjugándolas con la tradición literaria turca
