A sixteenth-century mystic poet from Sivas, about whose early life
very little is known.
He lived under Süleyman the Magnificent, was involved in a Alevî
rising and was hanged.
His poems, immensely popular for centuries among the Alevîs all
over the Ottoman Empire,
bear traces of social and political protest and are written in
the simple spoken Turkish
of his time.
