Gonca Özmen

In just two short books, Gonca Özmen‘s startling and arresting poems have earned her an unprecedented reputation in Turkey. Her mysterious, dream-like imagery and her fresh, restless approach to language mark her as a poet of rare ambition and intelligence. In poems whose power to mourn and remember love, to celebrate and reinvent the sensuous appetites of the body, enacts a subtle, exacting beauty, Özmen‘s is a voice and spirit to be welcomed.
With poems from all of Gonca Özmen‘s published work, The Sea Within introduces us to one of Turkey’s most significant young poets.
