Modern Bir Hafriyatçı olarak Osman Numan Baranus’un “Seyyid Nesîmî” Şiiri Üzerine Bir Okuma Denemesi

Sayyid Nesîmî; He is a very interesting personality and an exceptionally important divan poet, who lived in the second half of the 14th century and the beginning of the 15th century, has an important place in the history of literature and mysticism, both in terms of his poetry, beliefs and life. Divan poetry owes the symbols, interpretations and encryptions about the letters to him most epistemologically and ontologically. His unique style broke new ground in divan poetry. Seyyid Nesîmî influenced divan poetry the most with his language and style. There are quite a few divan poets influenced by him in this aspect. Sayyid Nesîmî; He was persecuted because of his Hurufism belief and was finally executed by being flayed in Aleppo. His persecution and unjust execution gave him a legendary hero identity in a short time. Therefore, in the Alevi-Bektashi tradition, he was accepted as one of the seven great poets in connection with the seven saints. After the post-Tanzimat modernization, Seyyid Nesîmî came to the fore with his execution, not with his language and style or poetry, and became the subject of poems. Modern poets have dealt with it mostly in their poems with this aspect. Another reason why poets use it in their poems is that he shared the same fate with the great sufi Hallâc-ı Mansur, also known as the "martyr of love". Seyyid Nesîmî, who is almost never mentioned as a name in Ottoman divan poetry, but about whom metaphors were created in connection with his ambiguous art, was rediscovered after modernization and especially in the Republican period, and independent poems were written about him. Osman Numan Baranus is one of the poets who mentioned Nesîmî independently in his poems in the Republican period. In this study, the social identity and image of Seyyid Nesîmî from Osman Numan Baranus's poem named Seyyid Nesîmî has been tried to be revealed in connection with poetics.
