Aşık Ömer

Aşık Ömer

Âşık Ömer is considered as one of the three greatest folk poets of the 17th century. Our poet, who considers teaching what he learned as alms in line with the responsibility coming from an ancient tradition, used his koşmas as a tool to spread the disseminate knowledge. What distinguishes Âşık Ömer and put him one step ahead of other saz poets is him serving as a bridge in the middle of two different traditions. His poetry resembles a plain irrigated by two separate rivers. When we read his poets we sometimes stumble upon a gazel adhere strictly to the divan literature tradition and sometimes we found ourselves in front of a plain, pleasant, folk song. Aşık Ömer, whose style, language richness and depth of meaning in poems are abundant, is one of our poetry and language masters that built our language to be a language of civilizations. Thus, understanding him means understanding what consequences that our language bore and holding these lands’ vein of civilization.
