In the "antinovel", which moves away from the traditional narrative technique and the fiction of the novel, the identification of the reader with the characters is prevented, and it is ensured that it is included in the novel itself, not as a character's guise. Forward and backward time-wise bounces are always made by stream of consciousness in the genre that does not flow chronologically. Thus, the ambiguity level reaches the upper levels in terms of the relation of events as part of both themselves and each other. Vladimir Nabokov's Pale Fire, and Oğuz Atay's Tutunamayanlar are considered typical examples of the antinovel. Two novels are described as “parallel antinovels” because of narrator, the use of stream of consciousness technique, poetry-explanation method, violation of formal rules, closed language games, cross-references and fiction. Tutunamayanlar, which is claimed to be not original because of its later writing and similarities, is an example of a antinovel, so it is not possible to completely detach from its predecessors. From this point of view, two works have been analysed from the viewpoint of comparative literary science. Although Atay uses similar techniques, it is possible to say that he has written an original work by creating a unique synthesis in content and formatting as a result of the analysis.
