Halid Ziya Uşaklıgil
|Halid Ziya Uşaklıgil|
Istanbul, Ottoman Empire
|Died||27 March 1945 (aged 78)
Halid Ziya Uşaklıgil was born in Istanbul in 1866. He went to primary school and then attended the secondary school Fatih Rüştiyesi in the same city. His family moved to Izmir in 1879. He completed his secondary education in Izmir attending the school which now is known as Izmir Atatürk Lisesi. He later attended a Christian school to learn French where he completed his first translation works.
Uşaklıgil founded the newspaper Hizmet in 1886. After 1896 his works were published in the Turkish literary journal Servet-i Fünun, known for its adoption of European literary styles..
When his novel Kırık Hayatlar (Broken Lives) was censored by the Ottoman Regime in 1901, he stopped publishing novels. Broken Lives could only be published in 1923 after the establishment of modern Turkey.
Uşaklıgil's early style is based closely on French Romanticism and most of his novels deal with unfulfilled love. His work is distinguished from contemporary Turkish literature by its more concrete form and creates its own artistic language through the use of Persian and Arabic loanwords.
In his later years he moved to the village of Yeşilköy near Istanbul.
