Küçük İskender, is a ‘cult’ poet for people with a wide range of political affiliations in Turkey, especially for the young. His poems are read as aphorisms or ‘postmodern proverbs’. He is very popular on social media and is tweeted & retweeted about often.
İskender has written frank, brutally honest, and sometimes shocking poems that push the limits of social norms. He has created profoundly philosophical poems with a unique literary style. He is a poet who deserves to be translated to many world languages and read widely.
What Pink Floyd meant for world music is similar to what İskender means for Turkish poetry.
