Abstract

What do the poems of Sultan Süleyman, 1520-1566, have in common with the Gezi events? At first glance, they seem to have nothing in common. The Gezi events concern us as current political movements, while the Ottoman poems are distant, often highly conventional works of the imagination, and it is seldom possible to identify any particular event behind them. However, both phenomena employ imagery to appeal to emotions.
