Beyatlı, Yahya Kemal


Yahya  Kemal  Beyatlı (1884–1958) is  one  of  the  most  famous  Turkish  poets  and  prose writers.  He  was educated at Istanbul Vefa College and then in France. Most of his work relies on patterns from classic Turkish poetry due to his attachment to  traditional prosody, although he was also influenced by 20th-century French poetry. Beyatlı is particularly known with his poems about Istanbul.  In his poem ‘From  Another  Hill’  he  expresses  his love for the city by focusing on the beauties of Istanbul. The poem has a well-known tune in classical Turkish music.
