Baykurt spent his childhood in various parts of Anatoliaand he was a Turkish teacher by trade. This novel, which takes a social realist approach to village life, earned him the Yunus Nadi Novel Award forand attracted a lot of critical acclaim.

In his works, Baukurt deals with the problems and the conflicts that rural folk experience. Yet he is not a mere onlooker, but also an activist who strived to change both society and individuals.

In addition, inBaykurt started working as an educational expert for German authorities in Duisburg to integrate foreign born children into the educational and social system.

Baykurt became an important social activist and an ardent fighter for various social establishments and non-governmental organizations. Baykurt claimed that the importance of literature came not from its subject matter, but from the language that it used. His works featured the same natural, plain Turkish that the people used. And then they became my own words. I have never been an extreme nationalist, yet baykudt it comes to language I am more king than the king — if such a thing can be measured.

In other words, I would sacrifice my life for language. Language is a confidant, and it is the source of my courage.

That is where the light is. In his works, he frequently used proverbs, idioms and regional words that he had collected from Turkish folk literature. Perhaps putting labels on literary works is what critics are supposed to do.

Yet, I did not write a village novel, I only tried to compose a decent baykur about life in the village. I do not know a genre called an urban novel either.

This could only be a novel about life in the cities. Baykurt’s villagers are not stereotypical individuals who act within an idealized good or an absolute evil. Rather, economic and social conditions determine the actions of Baykurt’s characters.

Baykurt did not only portray village life, but he was also interested in the fate of Turkish villagers, who never experienced city life even in Turkey, who migrated to Germany in hope of starting a better life. Just like many of his stories, the author’s novels analyzed the effort Turkish villagers showed to integrate into western culture, and showed the painful confusion they experienced in the face of these western societal forces.


Baykurt’s works are considered important not only for their literary value but also for sociological and folkloric elements that they contain. He stated that all his effort went into representing the state of mind of the villagers that he knew well, while considering the realities of rakir. The author’s works have earned countless awards, and many have been adapted to theater and film.
