The Red-Haired Woman

"Many years have now gone by, and jealousy compels me to keep her name a secret, even from my readers. But I must provide a full and truthful account of what happened." It is mid-1980s Istanbul and Master Mahmut and his apprentice use ancient methods to dig wells - they are desperate to find water in a barren land. This is the tale of their struggle, but it is also a deeper investigation - through mesmerising stories and images - into Pamuk's prevailing themes: fathers and sons, the state and individual freedom, reading and seeing. It is also 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...

PAMUK ORHAN (1952- )

Orhan Pamuk est né à Istanbul en 1952. Diplômé de l’École supérieure de l’université d’Istanbul, il a séjourné aux États-Unis et fréquenté l’université Columbia. Son premier roman, Karanlik ve Isik (L’Obscurité et la lumière), a reçu le prix du roman 1979 du quotidien Milliyet . En 1982, Cevdet Bey ve Ogullari (Djevdet Bey et ses fils) est récompensé par le prix du romancier Orhan Kemal 1984. Son roman Sessiz Ev (La Maison du silence, 1983) reçoit le prix Madarali en Turquie et en France, le Grand Prix de la découverte européenne en 1991, et Kara Kitab (Le Livre noir, 1990), le prix France Culture et le prix du Comité France-Turquie.

Avec Orhan Pamuk, ce n’est plus la problématique de la vie paysanne qui constitue les thèmes de l’œuvre romanesque. L’auteur s’efforce plutôt de narrer la recherche d’identité de ses personnages, et ceci dans le cadre de la vie sociale et historique de son pays. Ainsi, les questions liées au genre romanesque sont exploitées démesurément dans la structure de la narration.

Dans cette recherche d’identité, sans rapport avec celle que connut l’existentialisme, présentée dans une narration décousue où les détails historiques se mêlent à des visions éblouissantes, on peut lire en filigrane les mutations angoissantes d’un pays dépassé par l’histoire.

L’individu, chez Orhan Pamuk, symbolise l’évolution de la Turquie face à l’Occident. On est original si l’on remonte à ses propres origines. Telle est la conception de l’écrivain qui découvre dans les trésors de sa culture l’éblouissante richesse d’un passé plusieurs fois séculaire. Orhan Pamuk n’hésite pas à expérimenter différents procédés d’écriture comme le collage d’anecdotes historiques ou légendaires empruntées à des textes anciens ou nées d’un imaginaire fantastique. Bien que sa langue ne soit pas recherchée, dans ses digressions fréquentes, il crée ou recrée des images peu communes. L’écriture de Pamuk est très souvent bivalente et même souvent polyvalente, le mélange de plusieurs styles formant, en quelque sorte, une mosaïque pleine de richesses. La critique turque s’est montrée plus réservée que la critique internationale à l’égard de ce qu’elle appelle «des égarements de langage».
