The present work is an attempt to study the poetry of the late 17th early 18th century Ottoman writer Nl bi according to the principles of literary criticism as applied in other literatureS. A detailed examination of the Diván has been made, both in the published editions and in manuscripts, in order to date the poems to particular period of the poet's career, and to demonstrate the development of his artistic personality over the years. Although Nab' is shown to be a faithful exponent of the traditional values and conventions of Perso- Ottoman poetry, stress is also laid on those individual qualities that lead him to be regarded as the greatest literary figure of his age and the founder of a school which was to survive down to the mid -19th century. In addition, the details of his biography have been examined and certain persistent errors which appear in the literary histories have been corrected; the corpus of his works, published and unpublished, has been studied for the contribution that they could make to this purpose. Although in a work of this nature occasional subjective judgments and preferences. have been made there has been throughout a conscious attempt to evaluate his poetry in the light of contemporary Ottoman taste.
