The Red-Haired Woman

The Red-Haired Woman PAMUK, Orhan

This is a richly literary work: The Red-Haired Woman borrows from the tradition of the French conte philosophique and asks probing questions of ethics and of the role of art in our lives.
It is both a short, realist text investigating a murder which took place thirty years ago near Istanbul, and a fictional inquiry into the literary foundations of civilizations, comparing two fundamental myths of the West and the East respectively:
Sophocles's Oedipus Rex and Ferdowsi's tale of Rostam and Sohrab.
The Red-Haired Woman is a masterful and mesmerising work which further confirms Orhan Pamuk as one of our greatest novelists.
