Pursuit of New Antagonistic Discourses: Politics in the Poetry of the 1980’s

This book is the result of a research project examining the relationship between politics and Turkish poetry in the decade from 1980 to 1990. This decade was characterized by the 12 September 1980 coup d’état and the involvement of Turkey with the global economy. The study examines changes in the culture and literature of Turkish society within these parameters. Turkish poetry of the Republican period carried political and social references - except for movements such as “Second New” - until the 1980s. The military coup, the author argues, facilitated the rise of a new abstract poetry with its own micro-politics. In this poetry, political content swung towards individualism, and form changed along with the content. The research analyzes the changes in the purpose, theme and representation of post-1980s poetry along with changes in this socio-political environment.
