The Chaotic Awareness Reality and the Complexity in Turkish Novels
Depending on postmodern aesthetic debates, recently the metaphors of the chaos theory as paradigm also have been a critical theory in art, cinema, and literature. Mainly they can be listed as chaotic list, chaotic coding, and chaotically broken. In addition to these, in this work we propose the chaotic awareness reality in complexity as a new critical theory in the literature world. In consideration of this theory, we investigate the novels Silent House (Sessiz Ev; Orhan Pamuk), Dear Shameless Death (Sevgili Arsız Ölüm; Latife Tekin), and Black Terra Kefalos (Kara Kefali; Gediz Akdeniz) in Turkish literature. Also by this theory, we understand the difference in fictional complexity in these novels and try to identify the place of Turkish novels in the third culture.
