Orhan Pamuk is a Turkish writer, winner of many prestigious awards, including the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2006. The jury honoured the author, who “in the quest for the melancholic soul of his native city … discovered new symbols for the clash and interlacing of cultures.” Pamuk’s prose often displays a sense of fragmentation or loss of identity caused by the conflict between the European and Turkish values of Islam. His novel My Name Is Red provided the basis of an opera libretto titled I, Şeküre. Excerpts of the opera will be presented during Malta Festival Poznań 2023. The meeting with Ohran Pamuk will revolve around his latest novel, Nights of the Plague, published in May 2023 by Wydawnictwo Literackie.
