In this article, the positioning of time in the narrative is revealed based on periodic differences. Studies on time were examined and it was found that some of these studies dealt with the concept in the context of positioning in the contextual or sociological context, and in the other, in the context of positioning in narratology. Therefore, the absence of studies that look at the effect of power relations on time perception and how this is reflected in the narrative made the article privileged. In the study, the relation of the concept of time with the socio-cultural background is discussed, and then how it is positioned in the narrative is tried to be revealed with an eclectic approach and outlines. In the first title of the article, the narration-time relationship in oral culture, in the second title, the narrativetime relationship in modern culture were examined. Accordingly, it was determined that there is a time perception specific to the periods and this time also affects the narrative structure. The cycle-based time of oral culture, its repetitive structures in the text, and the speed-oriented time of modern culture based on external reality revealed chronological time, especially in the nineteenth-century narrative. With the suspicion of the modern age and the acceptance of relative time, the chronology of the text has been shaken and the familiar structures have been abandoned. In the subtitles, comprehensive results were tried to be reached in these relations points, and the interaction of time and narrative with the relations of power was revealed.
