Gibt es ein “Genre” noir in der türkischen Literatur? Bemerkungen zu einem weiteren Problem der Genre-Bestimmung


Scharlipp, W (2011). Gibt es ein “Genre” noir in der türkischen Literatur? Bemerkungen zu einem weiteren Problem der Genre-Bestimmung. Asiatische Studien / Études Asiatiques, 65(1):173-191.

Abstract

This article discusses the French word “noir” used as a literary term. As an imitation of its use in the expression “Film noir” it is nowadays mainly used in order to describe a certain kind of crime literature, while it denotes a certain kind of novel of social criticism in French that has a connec¬tion to crime. But in both cases, concerning film as well as literature, there is no clear definition which makes it difficult, if not impossible, to use it as a scientific term, for instance for certain genres or sub-genres. We will concentrate on some examples of Turkish literature that have been called “noir” literature during the last few years, as this term has not been used in Turkish literary history before and try to establish whether this designation is rightfully used. As so far there has not been any research into this topic, this article can be regarded as a basic contribution to the history of modern Turkish literature. If in this article some (well-known) non-Turkish authors are named, it is for putting the Turkish “noir” literature into an international frame.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
