Yunus Emre

Yunus Emre

Yunus Emre was a Sufi mystic and Turkish poet who became a leading representative of mysticism in Anatolia, but on a more popular level; he was venerated as a saint after his death. His poems, which are devoted mainly to the themes of divine love and human destiny, are characterized by deep feeling. He wrote in a straightforward, almost austere style and mainly in the traditional syllabic metre of Anatolian folk poetry. His verse had a decisive influence on later Turkish mystics and inspired the poets of the renaissance of Turkish national poetry after 1910.
