‘Neşet Ertaş – The Talent of the City’

In his book, Neşet Ertaş – Kentin Tezenesi, published by Anı Kültür Yayıncılık, journalist Yunus Ülger’s interviews with the great folk poet Neşet Ertaş, whom we commemorate with respect in the ninth year of his death, were published for the first time in Germany in early 2000, as well as his previously published interviews.

The book also includes descriptive and explanatory essays by Ülger to better understand the music of the bard.

Yunus Ülger states that he wrote his book to document the life of the master poet from his childhood and to provide data to researchers.

Ülger explains the reason for naming his book as Kentin Tezenesi:

“Neşet Ertaş has always been referred to as the “Tezenesi of the Steppe” for years. However, this characterization is a misnomer for his poet’s music. It also includes a disdain for folk minstrels, such as “Local Artist.”

Of course, there is the influence of the steppe in the music of the poet, but he is a city poet, he came to the city in his early youth and composed his most important works here.

Unlike his works, he listened to many artists in the city and was influenced by them, so Neşet Ertaş is the Temptation of the City. I tried to prove this claim in my book.”
