Halide Edip Adivar

Adivar, Halide Edip


Born 1883, in Istanbul; died Jan. 9, 1964. Turkish writer.

In Adivar’s early novels, such as Seviyye Talib (1909), Handan (1912), and The Latest Work (1912), women with strong and bright natures made their first appearance as positive heroines in Turkish literature. The New Turan (1912) was a novel permeated with the reactionary ideas of Pan-Turkism. The national liberation struggle in Turkey (1919–22), in which Adivar participated indirectly, was reflected in her works The Wolf Who Climbed Up the Mountain (1922), a collection of short stories, and the novels Fiery Shirt (1922) and Kill the Whore! (1926). The Tatar Girl (1939), a novel which proclaimed a “special” path for Turkey’s economic and social development, contains anti-Soviet tendencies. Adivar’s autobiographical novel, House of Clay, came out in 1963.
