Poetry of Murathan Mungan as an Ideology Murathan Mungan (b. 1955), interprets “the ideological context of daily details” as one of the main themes of his literary works. There is an attempt of finding and manipulating what is always valid in the relationship he built with the Tradition. He pursues not the “past” in today, but the “today” in the past, because, the “today” in the past is the most convenient material for him to settle with his past. Mungan deals with the themes relating to Human Evolution and tries to make his readers confront themselves. He makes his readers confront themselves through criticisms which are direct at times and subtle at others. Mungan successfully deals with the issues concerning the imposition of political, economic and social formations to individuals and the psychology concerning how individuals absorb these. That is why the main topic of Mungan’s works is the crisis of the transition period between “not being able to be oneself” and “encountering the tragedy of not being able to”. Not being able to be oneself means dependence on an “other” and this will cause the individual to accept the role that has been imposed on oneself. The poetics of Mungan stands between the modern and the traditional, but closer to the traditional. But, beyond its “definite” status, the most important status for Mungan’s works is the status between two states of being. The threshold is very important in Mungan’s works, as it is in Chekhov’s.
