Rehma xwede li be! He was a great patriot. He was the one of the few Kurds who never thought of Kurdistan as being 4 different parts. He always said that Kurdistan is one part and that Hewler, Qamislo, Amed and Sine are one body.

Letters From a Kurd, First Kurdish Novel Written in English

18.10.2014

Shorsh Muhammad
BasNews, Hewlêr

Letters From a Kurd, the first Kurdish novel written in English, is to go on sale in the United Kingdom and the United States next month.

The novel is published by Yolk, a UK publisher. It will go on sale in November 2014 in the UK, and will be available to the English speaking market worldwide, including on Amazon.

It was written by England-based Kurdish writer and film director Kae Bahar.

“I am delighted that Letters From a Kurd, my first novel, is to be published after a long and, at times, very emotional journey,” Bahar told BasNews.

“I grew up in Kurdistan under Saddam Hussein, and it was only storytelling and watching movies that helped me to survive. This universal, human story is very dear to me and I am thrilled to be able to give Letters From a Kurd to the world and share it with everyone,” added Kae Bahar.

The novel is about a Kurdish boy’s journey from oppression under former Iraqi dictator to United States.

Marywan is a Kurd growing-up in Iraqi-occupied Kurdistan under the despotic rule of Saddam Hussein, whom he secretly nicknames Qayishbaldar – the monster. To survive this harsh reality, Marywan lives in the fantastical and magical world of his citadel. He loves singing, acting and dancing, but his father expects him to become a Darwish, a devout Muslim.

Marywan (known as Mary) deals with the tragedies in his family and the tyranny and bullying that make his life hell, by discretely visiting the cinema and escaping into the magical world of Hollywood. He secretly writes letters to Gringo, a legendary American actor, begging for help to bring him to the US.

As his great escape becomes convoluted, Mary is drawn deeper and deeper into a dark, roller-coaster ride of drama, intrigue, savagery, love, betrayal and heroism which makes the movies he adores seem almost trivial by comparison.

Why there aren't already the most famoust Kurdish poets ?

Cigerxwîn (1903-1984) an Êlihlî. He was a Kurdish nationalist and communist poet. He wrote "Kî Me Ez" the most beautiful text that I've seen.


Posted Image
Ehmedê Xanî (1650-1707) a Colemêrglî poet is the father of the Kurdish nationalism. He was the first who wrote in Kurdish of all times with "Mem û Zîn" and wrote about Kurdish nationalism. This is the most famous Kurdish book.


Posted Image
Feqiyê Teyran (1590-1660) also a Colemêrglî poet wrote "Bayt Dimdim" about the legendary Battle of Dimdim which opposed Kurds to Safavid Empire in the name of an independent Kurdistan. He also wrote "Ey Dilberê". There are musics about from Aram Tîgran and Şivan Perwer.

Melayê Cizîrî (1570-1640) was a great Kurdish poet also. I don't really know him. Just he was very considered by his fellows (aforementioned).
Xortê Kurd tev hazir û amade ne
Canfîdane, canfîdane, her canfîda !
Kes nebe Kurd dimirin, Kurd jîn dibin
Jîn dibin qet nakeve Ala Kurdan !
