ORIENTALIST VIEW ON OTTOMAN IN THE NOVEL ROXOLANA (HURREM SULTAN) BY UKRANIAN AUTHOR PAVLOARHI POVIăZAHREBELNIY

Abstract

Author(s): Sinan ÇITÇI

This study aims to present the reception of a prominent figure in Ottoman history: Haseki Hürrem Sultan, the Ottoman Empire and its Muslim subjects by an Ukranian nationalist,PavloArhipoviçZahrebelniy, within his novel,The Roxolana. It also aims to search out how Zahrebelniy establishes the relationship between westerner and Orient/easterner. Although The Roxolana givesa lot of materials for many orientalist readings, we have only tried to show the Orient as a socio-cultural place against which the westerner positioned himself at the opposite side and the easterner has been analyzed as a “raw material for a laboratory”1 examination. Thus, we have also endeavored to search out how an Ukranian writer sees Turkish people. Lastly, Zahrebelniy set Roxolana on a pedestal contrary to European orientalists, while he sees the Orient and the westerner like an ordinary orientalists.
