Summary

Dede Korkut Narratives one of the masterworks of Turkish culture. Therefore a lot of works are done on Dede Korkut and its texts which each of them has got a epic caracter. Especially Kaplan’s Works and the other works that done later about the models in narratives and on their role and importance in history of Turkish culture are noteworth. İs there the events and caracters who proves that “alp” model degenerating in Dede Korkut or are these retouchings on ideal person model for necessity of the continuing life? In our work, we analysed Uşun Koca-Oğlu Egrek narrative under its structural aspect. We determined that all the units of event combine arround a collective idea and these conflicts or encounters describe this collective idea. We tried to call attention to ideal protagonist model of Oğuz with “alp-eren”s basic points are presented in the text that we discuss.
