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.
