Zülfü Livanelis Glückseligkeit und die Emanzipation
Ein Beitrag zum Kulturkampf in der türkischen Literatur
Zülfü Livaneli, a well-known contemporary Turkish writer, reflects in his novel Glückseligkeit (Bliss) the break of an East Anatolian maid with her tradition and culture. She emancipates herself from the immaturity, which her family (clan) inculcated in her and starts to insurge against their traditions. The rebellion against the community [and: their religious norms] is a process of emancipation, that may pass who gets in touch with another community following lesser strictly rules. Livaneli wrote a novel, which shows the Zeitgeist of the modern, global world and brings attention to problems of people in their small, individual worlds and their conflicts. The novel attempts to prove that an inner rebellion may break traditional [and: religious] norms. It will be analysed here against the background of Turkish and Oriental traditions and the range of cultural influences, referring to Paul Huntington's definition of culture as a theoretical starting point.
