My dissertation ”Then Suddenly. A New Kind of Mysticism, Self-Reflexiveness, and the Negative Way of Language in İlhan Berk’s Poetry" aims to give a deeper understanding of Berk’s (1916–2008) poetry approaching it from three different perspectives. These three different perspectives are so-called new kind of mysticism to which belongs a concept of sudden revelations, self-reflexiveness, which is connected to metalyrical aspects of poetry, and a negative way of language. Berk has been a changing force in contemporary Turkish poetry for over a half century (his first book was published in 1935 and the last in 2005). Berk’s poetry points repeatedly to some kind of transcendent being, or divinity, the enormousness and incomprehensibility of which it tries to approach in different ways. In my work, I ask how this divine state beyond limits and formulations is approached, how articulated, if all. Language itself is a central topic in Berk’s poetry. It seems to be a subject in its own right but remains theological in implication and attitude. One can find a metalanguage pondering about the inadequacy of words to describe their subject matter and the powerlessness of language that carries within it its negation, silence. According to my reading, Berk situates concern about language in the context of this theological tradition, in its mystical and negative aspects, so that his paradigm can be seen streaming partly from the concept of Islamic mysticism, Sufism. With the longer continuums, I analyze in which specific ways Berk’s poetry asks the limits of presenting the reality and subjectivity. I claim that in Berk’s poetry the tradition and the methods of the mystic language are productively, sometimes even ironically, exploited in the aim to create a new kind of subjectivity and inwardness. Furthermore, I ask how, according to Berk’s poem collections, the divine can be faced within our days after the so-called death of God.
