Ah Mine Ask
Ah Mine Ask Sented by Paul

Aşk, yerine göre yol olur yürünür, yerine göre iman olur uyulur. Bazen ateş olup yakar, bazen deniz olup boğar. Sultan olur ülke yönetir, şarap olur sarhoş eder. At olup koşar, kuş olup uçar. Hazine olur viran gönüllerde saklanır, kimya olur hakir topraklan altına dönüştürür. Sır olur saklanır, gonca olur açılır. Gül bahçesi olur kokusuyla âşıkları mest eder, güneş olur âşıklarının ümit meyvelerini olgunlaştırır.Aşk olunca gönüller birleşir, aşk olunca kıyamet koparcasma hareketlilik olur. Aşk olunca şimşekler çakar, rahmetler yağar. Âlemler kıyama kalkarsa aşktandır. Hastaların şifa bulması aşktandır. Aşk ile döner gökler, aşk ile durur kâinat. Aşk, Mecnun'dan Leyla'ya bir feryat, Mansur'dan dara bir sır, gözden kalbe bir yoldur.Velhasıl, klâsik edebiyatımızda aşk her şeydir, her şey de aşktır. Bütün bu sayılanlar divan edebiyatına bir aşk edebiyatı dememiz için kâfidir.

Les Essais
Les Essais Sented by Michael

Montaigne ülkemizde pek tanınmıs olmamakla birlikte bu çevirileri uzun bir önsözle vermeye cesaret edemedim, bunu gerekli görmedim. Çünkü Montaigne eserini zaten kendisini tanıtmak için yazmıs. Onunla okuyucu arasına girecek olan herkes bos sözler söylemek tehlikesine düser. Üstelik de Montaigne'in Türk okurlarına hiç de yabancı gelmeyeceğini sanıyorum: Çünkü yeni Avrupa'nın ana kaynaklarından biri olan bu büyük düsünce kaynağının bize Avrupa'dan gelen her kitapta biraz payı vardır. Yeni düsünce, insan bilincinin insanı ve doğayı serbestçe tanımak çabası ise, Montaigne bu çabanın ilk büyük hamlesidir. Bugün bizim de kavustuğumuz serbest düsünceye o, dört yüzyıl önce ve bizim uyanıs devremize birçok bakımlardan benzeyen coskun bir dönemde kavusmustur.
