S and flees without conscience Pamuk s unsparing view of Turkish society of the time finds both nationalism and modernism bankrupt cloaks that allow the narrators to continue their self deceptions Even Recep the only one who can be said to produce his best fforts fails Silent House also caused me though to think back about one issue that bothered me greatly about The Museum of Innocence the passivity of the female characters In The Museum of Innocence the female characters accepted their fate at least until the conclusion and ven then the woman who is the object of the narrator s destructive obsession acts as though she has no choices In The Silent House *Two Women Are Assaulted One *women are assaulted One to ride around in a car with her attacker and dismisses the importance of the incident the other refuses to seek medical attention That this minimization of violence in The Silent House and the lack of agency that marks the women in both novels is likely part of Pamuk s critiue of Turkish society But #it does not help his case that we spend so much #does not help his case that we spend so much understanding men who act childishly and in the nd destructively and so little among the injured women I don t know why I waited so long to revisit Orhan Pamuk Both My Name is Red and Snow have stayed with me for many years The conflicts of an En plein coeur extended family in Silent House mirror the political and social world of 1980 Turkey Pamuk isspecially brilliant at capturing the self destructive psyche of the male cousins A terrifying and sad novel When I first started reading Orhan Pamuk s books I really struggledand nded up abandoning Snow and My Name Is ReadIt just seemed to complex and I couldn t follow at all reallyBut

even though it is anarly work by Pamuk translated only after he became famous for his other works It has a lot of local color of Turkey and it s a primer on why much of the developing world is in such chaos I liked this almost as much as The Museum of Innocence which is still my favorite Orhan Pamuk novel but it s close it s a smaller book less dense than other Pamuk books I ve read The Taste of Night (Signs of the Zodiac,

Silent House is an arly novel by Nobel recipient Orhan Pamuk Compared to his famous work it is straightforward than My Name is Red which harnesses its setting in The Road From Home: The Story Of An Armenian Girl
early Ottoman Istanbul and its self conscious virtuosity to a mystery that rarely seems to be the novelist s focus Silent House shares the historical setting of The Museum of Innocence the politically riven Turkey of theighties Nationalism is on the rise and an Army coup is around the corner But unlike The Museum of Innocence Silent House is not narrated by a single obsessive voice which gives the later novel an often claustrophobic atmosphere It actually does not take place in Istanbul but instead in a small beach community on the Bosphorus to which the patriarch of the family had retreated after political disappointment to write *The Encyclopedia That He Believes Would Change *encyclopedia that he believes would change By the time of the novel he is long and his writing long destroyed although he is vivid in the memories of his ninety year old widow The other narrators are his progeny from the widow two grandchildren the failed historian Faruk and the youthful Metin the latter nvious of the wealthier and smoother children of the lite who he tries to match in sophistication with disastrous results Then there are Recep the patriarch s son by his mistress who serves the widow in her decaying house and Hasan a grandson who frustrated and grasping for hope falls in with the nationalists trying and failing to impress them This is broadly speaking a battle between those who favored modernizing Turkey although without Ataturk s skill or vision and those who insist on trying to recreate an imperial and religion centered past But Pamuk does not take sides his at times scornful at times sorrowful criticism is aimed at the delusional patriarch and Meten whose yearning for money and partying is the fruit of a powerful insecurity #OVER STATUS IN TRUTH METEN RESEMBLES #
status In truth Meten resembles which does not prevent him from treating his poorer cousin shamefully they are young men adrift in a society that is growing secular and money driven both knowing in their hearts that they will be left behind and both transmuting that anxiety into obsession over an unreachable girl The widow religious than her late husband spends her time talking back to her dead husband as she never could in life obsessing over the sins of her living and dead family members and accusing Recep who has the fewest discernible flaws of any of the narrators of various kinds of betrayal The treatment of Hasan is not unsympathetic with its careful xploration of the frustrations that drive him but in the nd he destroys what he says he love.
