Classical Turkish literature manifests the reflection of Ottoman civilization in words; it is a deep-rooted tradition that speaks from the peak of rhetoric and reigned for centuries by decorating the social and political life, artistic and cultural tastes of the period it belongs to and the common acceptances of tradition, with the delicate games of imagination. Although the works that define this literary tradition are dîvâns, the genre that is almost identical with the definition of classical Turkish literature, poetry journals, in which the most popular poems of poetry assemblies are brought together, are among the works whose value is unbeknown. These poetry journals include the poems of poets, who did not live long enough to compose a dîvân or whose poems did not reach the volume to form a dîvân, as well as the poems of poets that have a dîvân, but that were not included. Poetry journals, which were added to the rings of the rich and deep-rooted literary tradition of six hundred years along with dîvâns, emerge today as poetry anthologies that contain the works of dozens of poets, who live in different regions and whose countries, professions, belief worlds and cultural tastes differ from each other, and the compilers of these journals used their own literary taste and artistic identities while creating these journals. In this study, by tracing the mentioned artistic identity, the choices, preferences, tastes and characteristics of literary taste of a poetry journal compiler will be revealed, and the doors of the unknowns of a famous person will be attempted to be opened. The main problematic of this study is the general practice of not paying enough attention to identities of compilers by just using a few sentences in the studies on poetry journals and it is aimed that the determinations and evaluations in this work will set an example for future studies.
