Özet

Literature is mirror of life. Poets and writers are carrying (directly or indirectly) the elements of the culture in which they live poetry. Traces of this culture are the elements of poetry. The fireplace, one of the items of the Turkish culture is reflected in poetry. The fireplace -as a concept- has a special place in Turkish culture. Apart from its meaning as a fireplace at home, it stands for other meanings such as military center, dad's home and shrine as well. As the time passes, it has also started to be used for shrine, dergah, place of sacrifice. Besides, fireplace has various meanings especially in Alawi-Bektashi belief. Here in this belief, it stands for grandfather, mentor, patron saint who fulfill their religious services. In this article, the use of "fireplace" in Classical Turkish Literature -also known as Divan poetry- is investigated. After touching upon the general meaning of this word briefly, it focuses on its equivalent in Alawi-Bektashi literature and its related military meaning.
