Abstract

Şeyh Galib's verse romance Beauty and Love has been received as a startlingly original work, in contrast to broad disparagement of Ottoman poetry as imitative of the Persian. He articulated a poetics of originality in a "Digression" taken mid-way through his romance. He ridiculed a notion that poetry is properly the imitation of poetry, offering a series of proofs on the mode of existence, logical necessity, and universality of original poetry.
