Bejan Matur(Turkey)

Bejan Matur was born of an Alevi Kurdish family on 14 September 1968 in the ancient Hittite

city of Marash in Southeast Turkey. She studied Law at Ankara University, but has never

practiced. In her university years, her poetry was published in several literary periodicals.

Reviewers found her poetry ‘dark and mystic’.

Her first book, Rüzgar Dolu Konaklar (Winds Howl Through the Mansions) published in 1996 won several literary prizes. Her following books, Tanrı Görmesin Harflerimi (God Must Not See The Letter of My Script) in 1999. Her poetry has been translated up to 17 languages. Her book İbrahim’in Beni Terketmesi (Leaving of Abraham), published in March 2008, was considered by the critics to be her best book ever, creating a personal ontology and a personal mythology inspired by thousands of years of Sufi Tradition.

白江馬突爾,1968914日生於位於土耳其東南西臺古城馬拉什的一個阿勒維庫爾德族家庭。曾在安哥 拉大學修讀法律,但從未執業。求學期間曾在多本文學期刊發表詩作。她的詩歌被評為『黑暗和神秘』。1996年出版的第一本專輯《嘯嘯風聲響徹大宅》曾獲得多個文學獎。她的詩歌曾被翻譯成十七種語言。2008年三月出版的《阿伯拉罕的告別》被評論家喻為是馬突爾最優秀的作品,靈感來自數千年來的Sufi傳統,並成功地創造出自我的本體和個人的神話。
