CLOVE IN DIVAN POETRY

Abstract

Author(s): Fatih SONA

Love for flowers is a common enthusiasm in Ottoman Turks. We find this in their lives. We see this in their home, garden, poetry. They have loved all flowers with great affinity and rendered the flowers as ornament element within the community of Islamic civilization. Although rose is the most commonly used flower in Divan poetry, many other flowers had become subject to our poetry. One of these flowers is clove. Origin of the cloves is Asia. Clove is found on stone and glazed tile works made by Turks and Seljuks through out Anatolia. In Ottoman State era, we have seen clove in ornamenting arts. Clove is attempted to be grown in gardens because of the medical benefits and its nice scent and rare types of the clove were obtained. Clove is a flower loved very much with its beautiful scent and appearance. Clove is used in Divan poetry in certain metaphors. We shall attempt to assess the general uses of clove in this article.
