The novel won the Varlik prize for that year Turkey’s highest literary prize and earned Kemal a national reputation. Inthe book was translated into English by Edouard Roditi, thus gaining Kemal his first exposure to English-speaking readers. Memed, a young boy from a village in Anatolia, is abused and beaten by the villainous local landowner, Abdi Agha.

Having endured great cruelty towards himself and his mother, Memed finally mrmed with his emmed, a girl named Hatche. Abdi Agha catches up with the young couple, but only manages to capture Hatche, while Memed is able to avoid his pursuers and runs into the mountains.

There he jemed a band of brigands and exacts revenge against his old adversary. Hatche was then imprisoned and later dies. When Memed returns to the town, Hatche’s mother tells him he has a “women’s heart” if he surrenders himself.

He instead rides into town to find his enemy, on a horse given to him by the townspeople. He finds Agha in the south-east corner of his house and shoots him in the breast. The inec authorities hear the gunshots, but Memed gets away. Before Hatche dies she gives birth to Memed’s son, who is also named Memed.

The protagonist then must take care of his son. View all 9 comments. One of my criteria for rating a piece of fiction is this: Would I, or have I read it more than once. No matter how good, I almost never watch a movie more than once. But some books, I come back to over and over. This is such a book. I have read it several times. For me it is always entertaining and moving.

I tell all my students that if they wish to understand the prophetic passion for social justice that is to Memwd of my criteria for rating a piece of fiction is this: I tell all my students that if they wish to understand the prophetic passion for social justice that is to be found in the Old Testament, read Memed, My Halk. One is constantly outraged by the too real injustice suffered by Memed and the uncommon heroism of Memed as he fights and rises above it. The translation from Turkish is excellent.

This little known book deserves to be better known. Its author deserves to be more widely read. View all 15 comments. I’m a native speaker of the language in which this wonderful work of literature is written-Turkish. After reading the comments on the book here,I’ve started to think of reading it in English too because I’ve always thought its English translation could not possibly match its original version since cultural elements are a dominant part of the books.


I see that I’m wrong,though and I’m glad for it. The story takes place in Cukurova,Turkey;however,the feelings that the characters are involved in are mostly universal making the book a world classic. View all 3 comments. This modern classic was first published in The tale is of a boy Ince Memed growing up in a rural village on central Anatolia who escapes the tyranny of a brutal local landlord by becoming a bandit hiding out in the rough country of the Taurus mountains.

The story is told with a subl This modern classic was first published in The story ,emed told infe a sublime lyrical rendering of this place and people where Kemal grew up in a family of Kurdish immigrants.

He captures the beauty so well of this arid high plains in the mountain foothills. The rhythms of village life among the subsistence farmers and herders of the region are portrayed so vividly with all the senses–sight, sound, touch, and smell. Every action feels larger than life, reaching for a new mythology to give meaning to the human struggle. We first encounter Memed at about 12 running away over a ridgeline to seek refuge with a farmer inxe a neighboring village.

He tells of his life as a virtual slave to Abdi Agha, who owns all the land of five villages and cruelly lords it over its residents: The thistles devour me. Those thistles tear at your legs like a mad dog. Every day Abdi Agha beat me, beat me to death. If my mother memde, he beat her cruelly mdmed would beat me too. Once he tied me to a tree and left me there in the middle of the plain, far from the village. I stayed tied to the tree for two days, till Mother came and freed me. But for her infe wolves would have torn me to pieces.

He is captured and returned to work and punishment, but the dream of escape is awakened, and he bides his time. But Agha takes the majority of their grain crop for his own, ijce it is only though the charity of an old bandit living anonymously in their region that they avoid starvation.

At 16, he falls in love with a sweet, industrious village girl, Hatche. Their love becomes part of legend that will develop about Memed after he becomes a bandit: Every night, whatever happened, they would meet. If not, neither of them could sleep at all. It was no use. She knitted stockings and kerchiefs for Memed and mdmed songs over them, expressing love, desire, and jealousy in the colors of her embroidery and in the notes of her songs that are still sung throughout the Taurus.

People who saw her stockings were thrilled, and those who hear or sing her memsd still feel a thrill like the freshness of spring when everything is green. People who see Memed in this period sometimes become aware of the rebellion lurking in his spirit: All his life and energy, his hate, love, courage, and anxiety were concentrated in his big eyes. Every now and then a tiny spark would light them up and then die, a sharp, piercing spark, to be feared like the spark that flickers briefly in the eye of a tiger ready to pounce and tear its prey.


Where does this spark come from? Perhaps one is born with it. More likely it is born of torment, pain, anxiety. Once Memed makes his escape, he comes to be part of a new tribe of incce and has to memer a tough path among many bloodthirsty and lawless men.

His girlfriend is imprisoned for helping him escape, and mmeed dream of freeing her and living a normal life dwells deep in his heart.

İnce Memed 1

As larger and larger police contingents pursue him in his mountain hideout, his plans must become even bolder to achieve nemed aims.

Good deeds rendered to others along his life journey are paid back in propitious ways. I love how it slowly dawns on Memed that life is better elsewhere in the larger world. Not only might there be places free from tyrant landlords and with easier farming of loamy, well-watered fields free of thistles, there are cities beyond his imagination.

A man he encounters puts this vision in his mind: It sparkles day and night, incee like the sun. Trains come and go. On the sea, ships as big meed villages go to the other end of the world. Everything shimes like the sun, bathed in light. I have never believed in heroes. Even in those novels in which I focus on revolt I have tried to highlight the fact that those we call heroes are in effect instruments wielded by the people.

İnce Memed Book Series:

The people create and protect those instruments and stand or fall together with them. By creating myths, by conjuring up worlds of dreams, one can withstand the great suffering of the world and attain love, friendship, beauty, and, even perhaps, immortality. I was greatly moved by this mini-epic with Homeric ovetones. I thank Goodreads friend Baran for recommending this book and look forward to continued exploration of readings in Turkish literature and history.

Yashar Kemal is probably the best known author from that most admirable of Middle-Eastern peoples: His Memed, My Hawk is a folk tale of injustice by a cruel landlord turning a young farmer’s son to brigandage. At the same time he is a brigand, he is scrupulously justice, especially when dealing with the poor and the innocent. The peoplecreate and protect these instruments and stand or fall together vwith them. Still and all, Kemal was to write three more books featuring Slim Memed. For the first one, he was shortlisted for the Nobel Prize in Literature in That award was won by the Australian Patrick White.

I think it should have gone to Kemal.
