Carel Bertram discovered this truth.

"Houses can become poetic expressions of longing for a lost past, voices of a lived present, and dreams of an ideal future." Carel Bertram discovered this truth when she went to Turkey in the 1990s and began asking people about their memories of "the Turkish house." The fondness and nostalgia with which people recalled the distinctive wooden houses that were once ubiquitous throughout the Ottoman Empire made her realize that "the Turkish house" carries rich symbolic meaning. In this delightfully readable book, Bertram considers representations of the Turkish house in literature, art, and architecture to understand why the idea of the house has become such a potent signifier of Turkish identity.

Bertram's exploration of the Turkish house shows how this feature of Ottoman culture took on symbolic meaning in the Turkish imagination as Turkey became more Westernized and secular in the early decades of the twentieth century. She shows how artists, writers, and architects all drew on the memory of the Turkish house as a space where changing notions of spirituality, modernity, and identity—as well as the social roles of women and the family—could be approached, contested, revised, or embraced during this period of tumultuous change.

I didn't think this type of book would be as interesting as it turned out to be. It was a good and interesting book about how something as unassuming as a house could tell a nations' and peoples story. I learned alot about the ways and how of the building of a house in Turkey was influenced by the history of the people and how different rooms in the house were built for special uses. I recommend this book for someone that wishes a detailed history of a people without just focusing on a nations's leaders

This is the perfect book for anyone who loves to read history from the people's point of view. Accessible and charming - and liberally illustrated - Bertram's book highlights the connection between the distinctive timber-framed Ottoman houses and the imaginations of people who remember them and honor them in art, literature, and architecture.
