It is very common understanding in descriptions on Classical Turkish Literature that this literature was produced by male poets. However, many women poets like Zeynep Hatun, Mihrî Hatun, F?tnat Han?m, Leylâ Han?m, Âdile Sultan are also part of this genre, they also wrote in Classical Turkish Literature just like male counterparts. One of these female poets is eref Han?m. His lyrical poems which are written in feminen susceptibility are equal to many well-known poets in genre of literature. eref han?m reflects her love of Mevlânâ to her poetry owing to sensibility coming from her devotion to Tariqa of Mevlevî. She talks about this especially Masnavî-i Sherîf and its affects in her Divan. Yet Masnavî is,by her words, hüccet-i Monlâ-y? Rûm. In this study, it is examined in dealing with the themes about Masnavî-i Sherîf, tariqa of Mevlevî and Hz. Mevlana himself in Divan of eref han?m who is one of the poets of 19th century. In addition, it also pointed out how these cases appear in a female peot’s works.
