The Motif of Anonymity and Cemetery Absence in the Poems of Hüseyin Nihal Atsız

Hüseyin Nihâl Atsız, an important artist and opinion man of Cumhuriyet Era who wrote works with a Turkishness understanding; his essays, novels and poems came to prominence during his time. Having written articles in history and Turkology, Atsız also gained attention for his poems in the book The End of the Paths. This study has been supported by examples from Turkish literature and Turkish history in which Atsız 's motif for the edeb? of anonymity and graveyard was a motif and in what context it came across. In the Root Inscriptions, Turkish epics and scientific monuments, there is a lot of information about the subject. At the same time, motifs that reflect an ideal Turkish type appear not only in Atsız's poetry book The End of the Roads but also in his novels, a motif of anonymity and graveyard that is motivated by a historical understanding driven by collective unconsciousness. Atsız's understanding of the motif of anonymity and graveyard, which affects even his later ancestry, is important. There have been no previous studies on this issue in alaniasis. In Atsız's poems, the study focuses on the fikr? background of the understanding of anonymity and graveyard.
