Abstract

Author(s): G羹lay KARAMAN

Poet is the one who offers his feelings, thoughts and desires in an artistic and aesthetic mold by converting them with the help of imagination. He rebuilds the materials received from internal and external world in artistic dimension by using literary arts especially including similes and metaphors. In this process, the power of imagination shapes the poet’s feelings, thoughts and designs. In classical Turkish poetry the imagination is the beginning of the poem and an important source that the poet is fostered. Because the authors of tezkires who had assessments about the poets see the imagination as a value that results the good word and poetry. Looking at the language used in tezkires it can be said that the imagination is a criterion for aesthetic considerations that defines and seeks the beauty. Evaluating the classical Turkish poetry in its system requires us to take into account the assessments and the concept of view of the poets over the imagination. In this context, the concept of imagination is seen in classical Turkish poetry used with a variety of similes and metaphors. In these similes which the imagination is associated with the concepts like treasue, rose garden, sea and sultan it is possible to find the value and the function of imagination that the poet attributed to. The imagination that the poets pointed out its place in poetry under various similes and metaphors has a poetic and aesthetic value in classical Turkish poetry.
