Alienation, in a way, results from the fact that the social relations become complex. The concept of alienation directly derives from the original activity of the human beings, but to be concluded, it needs the absolute act of the society. This development causes the dialectic effect which takes on a shape between the individual and the society to affect the person. The development of the “ego” as an extension of the individualism, getting intensity of the feelings like being egoistic, society’s leaving the individual alone, leaving the individual with his/her fate alone, not caring for him/her are the main reasons cause to arise the concept of alienation. The person whose organic relation with the social life cut by being left alone becomes alienated for a while. Rather than the reasons which result from the individual, living the process of alienation by the effect of the society attracts the Classical Ottoman poets’ attention, and becomes the subject of their poetry.
