Local feelings in Turkey are different about Orhan Pamuk and his works. Some say that Pamuk is not even a good writer and what he says is overwhelmingly interesting in other languages when it is dark and boring in Turkish. Others say Pamuk`s writing offended Turks and made harms for Turkey. But Pamuk is a historian and his novels are full of political, cultural, and religious struggles of Westernization and Islamization. He is a wellselected author to remove doubt in defining a new Turkish literary precedent.
Life into literature: Orhan Pamuk in his works as a biographical study explores how Westernstyle writer, Orhan Pamuk and his fictions such as The White Castle, The Black Book, My Name is Red, Snow, and A Strangeness in My Mind, and his nonfiction such as Istanbul and Other Colours, demonstrate Pamuk`s life experiences. Besides, this critical work shows how these works have unwittingly been influenced by his family, relatives and friends.
