Interview KWERFELDEIN Magazin

 

The melancholy of Istanbul is huzun, a Turkish word whose Arabicroot (it appears five times in the Koran) denotes a feeling of deep spiritual loss but also a hopeful way of looking at life, “a state of mind that is ultimately as life-affirming as it is negating.” For the Sufis, huzun is the spiritual anguish one feels at not being close enough to God; for Saint John of the Cross, this anguish causes the sufferer to plummet so far down that his soul will, as a result, soar to its divine desire. “It is the failure to experience huzun that leads him to feel it.” Huzun is not a singular preoccupation but a communal emotion, not the melancholy of an individual but the black mood shared by millions. (Orhan Pamuk)
