One of the important representatives of our literature in the Republican period is Yahya Kemâl Beyatlı. Although he has prose works, his main artistry is in his poetries and style as a poetrist. The most important feature of Yahya Kemâl as a poetrist is the fact that he has a command of Classical poetry and reflects all the subtleties and artistic aspects of this literary period. While performing this, Yahya Kemâl is an important artist who has been able to use all the facilities and skills of Turkish to the end. Yahya Kemâl, in one way, was completely fed from tradition. He re-interpreted the basic dynamics, features and content of Classical poetry. However, he is not entirely a Classical literary imitator; he incorporates the literary pleasure, perception and understanding of his period into Classical literary. In his work titled "With the Wind of Old Poetry", which consists of his poems, which he says in this style, he seems to have used the completely traditional one as a figure. In the poems in this work, he keep the original shapes of the words. However, we observe the evolution of Turkish in his work titled “Our Own Sky Dome”, including the collection of his poems assumed as the continuation of the same tradition. The Arabic and Persian words seem to have been used intentionally in the poems of Yahya Kemâl, depending on some sound features of Turkish over time.
