Abstract

This paper is an analysis of the narrative structure of the chronologically final part of ahmedi's (d. 1413) primary work İskendername, in terms of its perception of time and history. In so doing, it may be possible to examine how early Ottoman historiography dealt with the past and the present. in fact ahmedi's Dastān has been extensively used by scholars so far, but only as the focus of discussions on the Ghaza thesis, however, the examination of ahmedi's eclectic and sometimes anachronistic history and his treatment of time will provide us a theoretical perspective to the early Ottoman historiography, which has not yet been done in Ottoman studies. © 2009 akadémiai Kiadó, Budapest.
