Ahmet Mithat Efendi who was born in 1844 and died 1912 is one of the most productive writers in Turkish literature. When Ahmet Mithat Efendi continues his education in the territory of the Balkan, he begins to work as a correspondent at Tuna newspaper thanks to Mithat Paşa. He also carries on working as a correspondent at Zevra which is a province newspaper being published in Bağdat (1869). Ahmet Mithat Efendi who comes back to İstanbul in 1871 pursues this job yet. He takes his unforgettable and monumental place in press, art, literature and culture life over 40 years except his exile years. In our study, since it passed one hundred years from his death, the aim of remembering and reminding him will be intended and also it will be gone through his works as being a novelist. On the other words, our study will be written in the identity of necrology and especially, we will deal with Ahmet Mithat Efendi’s art of the novel.
