The first chapter of this study defines the concept of poetic justice, and looks at how Antique and Classical theater interpret this notion; the concept is illustrated via the play Oidipus Rex. The second chapter of the study, deals with the interpretation of the concept by the Romantic and Realistic movements. The general summary of how modern and post-modern theater deal with the concept follows this section. The third chapter of the study explains the concept of poetic justice in modern Turkish drama by using Melih Cevdet Anday’s (1915-2002) original plays as illustrations. The following plays have been included in this study (in chronological order): Yılanlar, İçerdekiler, Mikado’nun Çöpleri, Yarın Başka Koruda, Dikkat Köpek Var, Ölüler Konuşmak İsterler, Müfettişler and Ölümsüzler Ya Da Bir Cinayetin Söylencesi. As a result of the study of these plays, it becomes evident that Melih Cevdet Anday has conceived a special kind of poetic justice, which is rare in both Turkish and World Theater. This understanding of justice has been developed in order to bring good to the world by eliminating the reasons of evil.
