Nazım Hikmet, the greatest poet of the Turkish language, wrote hundreds of letters to his wife, Piraye, from 1933 to 1950, intermittently during his 17 years in prison. Through these letters, he shared his love, fight and longing with Piraye in the purest form. Piraye kept these letters for years in a wooden suitcase that Nazım made with his own hands in Çankırı Prison. What enabled Nazım to hold on to life during his difficult years of captivity was the existence of love, struggle and longing as a whole in his heart. Prepare to meet the universal and immortal aspects of love, poetry and music, and to open the doors of your heart, on this journey to the inner world of master poet Nazım Hikmet, which consists of letters and poems written with all the strength of his heart.
