Your wheel is bound to break in two; You put your faith in your sultan: Someday, though, he will tumble too. The following lines, attributed to Dadaloğlu (d. ca. 1868) were meant, in Pir Sultan Abdal’s tradition, to fire the blood of the masses: The state has issued an edict against us The edict is the sultan’s but the mountains are ours. Oral folk literature, created by the collective poetic and narrative faculty of the common people of Anatolia, has been kept alive through the centuries by ozans (minstrels), saz poets (poet-musicians), and âşıks (troubadours).
Karacaog˘lan, seventeenth century The moods of folk poetry range from tender love to angry protest. For instance, the closing lines of an old anonymous mani (quatrain) inquires: There’s the trace of a gaze on your face Who has looked at you, my darling? And in the nineteenth century, Serdari bemoaned: The tax collector rips through the villages His whip in hand, he tramples on the poor. 30 A Millennium of Turkish Literature Folk literature produced a large corpus of stories, tales, allegories, fables, and riddles.
Oh, Nevâî, tortures abound, but the worst punishment is when Separation’s pain is all and reunion’s solace is nothing. A thorough study of the ramifications of the darling–king–divine triad, which is offered here more in speculation than in substantiation, would give us a new understanding of Divan poetry—in particular mystic poetry—as a massive subversive literature, a strong protest about ruthless rule by the sultan who dispenses cruelty even though his subjects profess their love for him. Seen in this light, the sultan, metaphorically depicted, is a ruthless tyrant who symbolizes cruel love, a supreme being, like God, who has no feelings for his suppliants.
