    Abstract:
    This study attempts to investigate the salient features of Turkish literary criticism through deconstructing the concepts of language, aesthetics and ideology intersecting the disciplines of sociology and history. It questions the nationality of the self-evident category of "Turkish literature" exploring in what ways the Turkish Literary Criticism operates in relation to its aesthetics and ideology. While discussions on nationalism invite us to reconsider Turkish Literature vis-a-vis post-colonial framework, the limitations of this framework for the Turkish literary studies are put to contest. Instead of inserting theoretical standpoints to fit into Turkish Literary criticism, this paper elaborates on interrelated concepts to fashion a stratified literary critical framework.
