Title: Crossing boundaries : history, art & culture in orhan pamuk‘s my name is Red.
Authors: Nurfaiezah Mohd Osman.
Keywords: DRNTU::Humanities::Literature::English

Abstract: In an essay by Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’O, he questions the relevance of simple and common categories such as the East and the West. Instead, he seeks to eradicate the boundaries created by these terms, likening them to bridges where cultures cross paths, influencing and developing one another. Bearing in mind the idea of boundaries as a pathway for the introduction and interaction of various cultures, values and ideas, I approach Orhan Pamuk as an author whose works are conscious of the complexities arising from such crossing of boundaries. This is especially apparent in My Name Is Red, a novel that explores the difficulties in negotiating between differences in artistic influences, history and culture in sixteenth-century Ottoman Istanbul.
