REDEFINE OKTAY RIFAT'S "TELLİ TELEFON" POEM IN THE CONTEXT OF SEMIOTIC POETRY CRITIQUE THEORY OF MICHAEL RIFFATERRE


Oktay Rifat (June 10, 1914 - April 18, 1988), one of the three important names of the Garip Stream in modern Turkish poetry, who started his art career and then became one of the important names of the Second New Generation, married with Turkan Dilber Aksoy, the daughter of M. Halit Aksoy, the governor of Zonguldak, who had a great love of military affairs, on February 13, 1943 and suffered the great pain of losing him from tuberculosis in the same year. In the wake of this death, he writes poems "Telli Telefon" and "Türkan'a Ağıt" (Özcan, 1999: 16). This data makes these two poem texts meaningful in terms of writer-centered analysis. The aim of this work is to redefine Oktay Rifat's poem entitled "Telli Telefon" in the context of Semiotic Poetry Critique Theory, developed by literary genres only for poetry criticism, to explain Michael Riffaterre's intertextual relations. In the process of reinterpreting a text, a single theory of criticism can not be sufficient by itself, and in the critique of modern poetry, one dimensional reading now leaves multiple readings. From this point of view, Oktay Rifat's "Telli Telefon" poetry is being resolved according to Michael Riffaterre's Theory of Semiotic Poetry Criticism, from time to time in the places where the text required it to be sent to other reading styles.
