["THE SUN ALSO RISES" IN TURKISH] Günes de dogar: Roman. [i.e. The sun also rises]. Translated by Filiz Karabey, (1930-2010).
ERNEST HEMINGWAY, (1899-1961).
Varlik Yayinlari, Istanbul, 1955.
Scarce first Turkish edition of “The Sun Also Rises” by Hemingway, one of the most significant figures of 20th century American literature.
The novel was published in 1955 for the first time in Turkish with the translation of Filiz Karabey [Ofluoglu], (1930-2010), by Varlik Yayinlari [i.e. Existence Publishing House] which has an important role in the Turkish cultural world.
Hemingway won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953 with a short novel (The Old Man and the Sea) and the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. Thus, the author of the Lost Generation and his literary work, in particular, the novel “The Sun Also Rises” became widely popular in Turkey soon after the first edition which we present here. Various editions were printed by Varlik Publishing in the following years, and the novel was also published under different titles by other publishing houses afterward.
