One of the subjects that are not discussed in Divan Literature is to determine the date from the letters in the text, namely the chronogram. There are couplets and stanzas with the chronogram in manuscripts, lithograph books, printed magazines, historical buildings, tombstones, etc. In poetry in which the chronogram is hidden, this art sometimes does not make itself felt, it is only revealed by the attention of those who know. The lines, couplets and stanzas of thousands of poems scanned from books and magazines with chronogram examined in all their details. Thus, the keys of the chronogram was taken by the researcher. This comprehensive study was first prepared as a thesis, and later published under the name “Chronogram in Turkish Literature" and presented to readers. In our article, this book, which can be accepted as the most comprehensive resource in its field, has been handled in ge-neral and has been prepared as a summary for those who are interested in poetry and chronogram.
