Example text

I approach this topic by first considering the ways in which it has been treated in the relevant existing literature and then attempting an overall assessment of the Ottoman/Republican relationship as viewed through educational change and continuity. Treatment in the literature I begin with an example taken from an early Republican-era reading primer, because it encapsulates an important aspect of the early Republican government’s stance towards the Ottoman period. Young Republican readers were being made to disparage the Ottoman past, by characterising it as decadent and reactionary.

The first issues contained the beginning of a debate on literature, which continued for a long time, and an investigation of the concept of ‘national literature’. However, even this search has more to say about the ‘national language’ than the possible or desired content of a national literature. An article by Ali Canip, for example, is accompanied by various young writers’ answers to a question about the literary worth of four writers of the previous generation, Tevfik Fikret, Cenab S¸ahabeddin, Halid Ziya and Mehmed Rauf.
