Hello, I am looking for someone to write an essay on Reimagining the Ottoman Legacy by Orhan Pamuk. It needs to be at least 250 words.
The Clown and His Daughter (1935) and the author makes it clear to the readers that “These are authors of distinct periods, styles and approaches to literature” (p.150).
With the contents provided in this chapter the reader is introduced to the work of artists, miniaturists, who have portrayed battles and coronations and other cultural festivities of the time, epic poems, parables and feats of conquests. The importance of Nature can be seen as tree leaves were given equal importance as given to faces, they were part of the design and ornamentation. If one studies Nature, it is articulated that one will find Allah.
Koran is never illustrated. Implicit faith in the Prophet and following his teachings is demanded as otherwise it will lead to catastrophic events and human suffering. The contents of the book also articulate how it is impossible to separate Muslim culture from Islam. The two are integrated. And something about the paintings! An artist does not differentiate between the East and the West. He paints with his independent perspective and vision. The tenets of Orthodox Islam have been faithfully given in the book.
