Immaculate moral attitude

In February, the decision to grant the writer the title was unanimously adopted by the university senate. In the application for honoring the Nobel Prize winner, it was indicated that the work of Orhan Pamuk “constitutes an achievement that speaks of universal human values, both in terms of content and form”.

– We distinguish one of the greatest living writers of our time, a man who is the author of not only excellent and moving novels, but also someone of impeccable moral standing – said Prof. Tomasz Mizerkiewicz, Dean of the Faculty of Polish and Classical Philology of the Adam Mickiewicz University.

As added, Pamuk is involved in international affairs. It was recalled that he was one of the first writers to speak out against the fatwa imposed on Salman Rushdie. Pamuk’s comments on the slaughter of the Armenian minority in 1915 and the memory of the victims of the Kurdish uprising in the 1990s resulted in the writer being accused in 2005 of insulting the Turkish nation.

Nobel Prize winner from Istanbul

Orhan Pamuk was born on June 7, 1952 in Istanbul. He studied journalism at Istanbul University and started writing while still in college. His first novel, Karanlik ve Isik (Light and Darkness), was published in 1974. Later, there were “Beyaz kale” (“White Fortress”, 1985), “Kara kitab” (“Black Book”, 1990), “Yeni Hayat” (“New Life”, 1994), “Benim adim kirmizi” (“My name is red” “, 1998) and “Snow” from 2002. In 2006 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.
