Turks have a large canon of epics which they carried their ways of being to a tangible ground. These epics are given meaning by a common sense of belonging and they contain a special past form of living with reference to the civil envision of Turks. The human life and the struggle to survive in that envision are carried out to a literary tradition. Thus they turn into the past common form of living together with the common sense of belonging. In this resperct epics are “national memoirs” in which people embody their necessity to identify and to describe themselves through an identity. The ones who aimed to make Anatolia a Turkish homeland between 12. and 15. centuries, enlarged their borders for the material conquest, besides they created epics in Islamic form for the spiritual conquest. These epics telling about the life stories of Battal Gazi, Deni?ment Gazi, Sar? Saltuk, Umur Gazi in the genre of memoirs, turns into national memoirs that contains the traces of national aims for the identification process of these lands
