Item description for Bellini in Istanbul by Lillias Bever...

The incident at the center of this cycle of poems is Italian painter Gentile Bellini's sojourn to Istanbul in 1479. Poems undulate out from this event and carve plaintive sculptures that explore the themes of art, archaeology, and the idea of cultural transmission. These insightful contemplations are delicately honed by the author's own experiences in Turkey, ultimately fashioning a personal mirror to history, reflecting the landscape of self.

Lillias Bever's work has appeared in Poetry, The Gettysburg Review, New England Review, Seneca Review, Pleiades, and others, and has been featured on Poetry Daily. She has been a resident at The MacDowell Colony and the Millay Colony for the Arts and is a recipient of a Seattle Arts Commission award and a literature fellowship from Artist Trust/Washington State Arts Commission. She lives in Seattle.

Reviews - What do customers think about Bellini in Istanbul?

A compilation of free-verse poetry featuring absorbing descriptions of Italian scenes  Nov 3, 2007
Winner of the Tupelo Press Judge's Prize, Bellini in Istanbul is a compilation of free-verse poetry featuring absorbing descriptions of Italian scenes, Turkish fish markets, and other exotic locales as well as deeply personal difficulties. The end of a relationship turned sour in a foreign land, followed by the creation of a new one; the pain and wonder of bringing a child into the world; and the eternal search for meaning in life make for an unforgettable poetic experience. "Ezan": In Bebek, a famous tenor calls / the ezan from Kemalettin's elegant, dove-grey mosque, // his voice spilling like noon light over the park. / It's Friday. The devout are washing // off the morning's dust, their shoes lined up / neatly at the lip of the public fountains.
Fabulous  Apr 17, 2006
I am not a big poetry reader, but I loved this book. The visualizations one encounters while reading this poetry is both beautiful and almost nostalgic for an age gone by. It will make you pine to go abroad and experience what Bever writes about. It simply will take you away.
