Azmî-zâde Hâletî’nin Dervis Pasa Hicviyyesi: Hadd-i Mestân (Azmi-zade Haleti's Satire About Dervis Pasa: Hadd-i Mestân )

Satires come out of the mergence of the poet's imagination and the emontions such as rage, hatred, will to ridicule, criticism that comes from human nature. In this context, increase in the writings in this genre must be carefully addressed, the mesages it gives must be examined thoroughly. We witness that works belong to satire genre is written more than any otherperiod in 17th century in Turkish literature. Decay in the political structure of Ottoman Empire played a substantial role on this. Divan poets did not fail to notice how bureaucrats tried to disgrace their rivals with plots. Poets took a stand against the people who are high-handed, wrongdoers and engaged in political plots. Azmi-zade Haleti is one of this poets. The subject of this article is his satire named Hadd-i Mestan which he said about the grand vizier of the period. This satire had not been come to light before although there could be found information about it on the reference works. Haletiwho is mostly mentioned with his rubais in the literature histories, used a very strong language that is similar to Nef'i's. Hadd-i Mestan that the poet wrote after the execution of Dervi? Pasha who is not refered with fairness in Ottoman chroniclesis an important piece of work for Turkish satire literature.
