As a poet novelist, Hüseyin K?ran's works offer important materials to language and literature researchers especially in terms of the relationship of language with philosophy and psychoanalysis. Although his works are considered in the field of underground literature in general, the author does not define himself in any genre, movement or understanding. Nonetheless, he writes works which have parallelism with the Postmodern concept of language and the perspective on its "relationship with reality". In these works, it can be seen that reality is shaken with language and often re-created. In the novels of the author, with the effect of being a poet, words with plenty of associations, sound and word repetitions, images, unusual language relations, deviations from the rules of established language, allegorical and ironic expressions, in short, language games draw attention. The novels that the author has published so far are the following: Resul (2006), Gecedegiden (2011), Benim Ad?m Meleklerin Hizas?na Yaz?l?d?r (2013), Da? Yolunda Karanl?k Birikiyor(2016) and Ya?amak-Bir Çaba (2018)Based on the findings mentioned above, the language and expression of the five novels (with his own words narratives) Hüseyin K?ran has published so far will be evaluated based on the "language games" which is a technique frequently used in postmodern literature.Firstly, the postmodern understanding and its approach to language will be mentioned and then the traces of this understanding in the novels will be sought. The language games and functions which the author used in his novels will be exemplified under the following titles: “Language Games: New Forms of Writing and Expression ”,“ Multiplying and Questioning the Meaning with Synonyms-Associative Words”, "Rambling On By Expressing The Possibilities- Breaking Away From The Meaning-Becoming Meaningless", "Renewing-Multiplying the Meaning by Repetitions-Reduplications-Mimetic Words", "Breaking the Given Language and Power Discourse" and "Questioning the Language-Reality Relationship Through Signifier-Signified Discussion"
