As if his poetry had been published before, Poet S. Aldanır has been introduced to larger audience by short story teller and publisher Salim Şengil. He has found place in Garipçiler with his poetry style and technique and in socialist realists in terms of the subjects he touched on. In his poetry, he succesfully treated people and subjects as social, political, artistic, cultural and educational issues of the society using the elements like criticism/satire/irony/ humour. As he did these, he refused inspiration and argued that made-to-order poetry could be written. Because of this matter, he refused many of the poetry in his first book Memleket Saat Ayarı to be recognized as poems in its preface. The aim of this study is presenting S. Aldanır, who has a distinct poetry concept for his time and today and who has been neglected by our literary history, to today's audience by means of discussing given features.
S. Aldanır, Selahattin Aldemir, criticism/satire/irony/humour, Memleket Saat Ayarı.
