Ran (1902-1963) is a very important Turkish poet. He was sent into exile and called “traitor” because of his political beliefs. His work, which was mostly about Turkey when he was in exile, was translated into more than fifty languages. In 2009 he was pardoned and reestablished as a Turkish citizen, but his grave still lies in Russia. As he said in one of his poems: “I am a walnut tree in Gulhane Park, neither you are aware of this, nor the police”.
