The main purpose of this study is analyzing Sait Faik Abas?yan?k’s story named ‘Stelyanos Hrisopulos Gemisi’ from the subordinate perspective and investigating the plot of the story, characters, socio-economical situation of the time and tendency of Sait Faik towards the choice of the characters. The term ‘subordinate’ refers to a person or a group that is belittled and marginalized by the society due to belonging to a different race, class, cast, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity and religion. Furthermore, the term also refers to the groups that are illiterate, not represented in the society due to belonging to a sub-culture, undereducated and dependent. These groups have been affected by the oppression of the dominant class directly or indirectly. If the story is investigated from this perspective, it can be realized that the characters of the Sait Faik’s story consist of people that are shunned by the society, belittled, belong to a lower class and can not make their voice heard in the society. Sait Faik, one of the most important authors of his time, gave place to the people that are marginalized, poor, victim, belong to an opressed lower class in his stories which made him different from the other authors. The stories that he wrote in a humanistic and observant-realistic manner draw the picture of the situation, socio-economic state and sociology of the society of the time that the story is written which makes these stories important. Consequently, the subordinates that are left between the conflicts of the rich-poor, countryman-townsman and opressed, trailed off and become estranged to the society arethe characters that we confront in the Sait Faik’s story named ‘Stelyanos Hrisopulos Gemisi’.
