Araba Sevdası Roman İncelemesi

The persona of Sousou is highly comical but the tragic turns, to a great degree as ironically melodramatic as the ornamental grief of Bihruz, leave a bitter taste that evokes the reader’s sympathy.

Impressed by the girl’s beauty and chic European clothing, the location and the luxury of her carriage, these being for secdasi not only indications but actually irrefutable evidences of a high class and intellectual background, he immediately falls in love.

The parody of the hollow person that is cloaked with a dazzling western show comes to reveal the inherent simple truth, that behind the mimicry lies an absence.

The hero of the novel, Bihruz Bey, is a young Turkish dandy, whose uncritical aping of western manners and exaggerated use of French out of context, even in the simplest conversations with uneducated folk, are an emulation of the reformed Ottoman Turk.

The passion fo r carriages as a status symbol dates from the midth century. Her new entourage approaches her with no less amusement, as her blatant employment of classy antics and the recurring hints that her obscure past may be too humble for her to deserve a place among them destroys any possibility for sympathy.

There is neither a firm narrator nor a resolute authorial voice in the novel to denounce the foppish Bihruz. This is evident in the controversy of the local beauty, Katinitsa and the incessant flirtation she receives by the barber, Georges, to the annoyance of the neighbors that are subject to his serenades every night.

The grotesque doll that she buys for an exorbitant price from an antique shop is missing an arm and a leg, but she sees in its deformity the proof of its ancient Greek origin, whereby statues and dolls were supposedly designed armless or legless.


Bihruz’s relation with his mother, a love that is as bankrupt as their finances, is presented with a series of dialogues in which the discourse of intimacy is as eloquent as it is devoid of emotional proximity.

On a distinct space and time, but still so relevant in its expression, Bihruz Bey becomes the archetype of a modernization gone wrong; a modern man that is left without the slightest speckle of integrity.
