Translating Turkish Literature with Aron Aji
Find out how a religion survives without any art. That's just what happens in A Long Day's Evening when the Emperor of Byzantium orders the destruction of all religious paintings and icons. Veteran Turkish translator Aron Aji here talks about his work with a masterwork by 20th-century Turkish author Bilge Karasu, often referred as "the sage of Turkish literature."
Recipient of a National Translation Award and a National Endowment for the Arts Literature Fellowship, Aji here discusses the challenges inherent in working from this challenging language. For more info, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
