  • The Phenomenon of Love in Ayşe Kilimci's Stories within the
           Frame of Metaphor Concept

    • Authors: Alpay GEZER
      Abstract: Ayşe Kilimci deals with various aspects of love asa main or a side theme in her many stories, yet,she does not treat love only as an emotional framebetween man-woman relation. She accepts love asa dominant element of all good and beautiful acts.This author deals critically to love experiencesaround her. Although she has witnessed that lovehas gradually turned into a one-person tradition,she does not lose faith in love. From her ownperspective, the author successfully explains whatlove is and sometimes what not to love, and hasdrawn a broad framework with originalmetaphors. Having a metaphoric and ironic sense,the writer sometimes uses symbolic characters inher stories, and she always catches magic of lovein her stories which have a realistic social view. Itis a natural necessary to use concrete concepts toexpress an abstract concept like love. That is whatthe analogy is. Moving from weak (abstract) tostrong (concrete) requires metaphorical elements.In addition, a less abstract description can be usedto describe an abstract concept. In this manner,Kilimci used metaphor as a leverage to convertlove, which has a very wide and deep meaning,into a concrete concept. While expressing theconcept of love with metaphors, she did not leaveher responsibility as writer. Regarding anobjective approach, some points may get invisiblewhile expanding a metaphorical idea or making ametaphorical idea clear. She is aware of darknessthat the metaphor covers. She gives opportunity tomake a sound assessment to readers, by usingironies or other metaphors to make clear the darkaspects that she has gleamed with metaphors. Inthis study, the metaphors which transfer preciouslove theme from abstract to concrete field in AyşeKilimci stories have been determined. Followingthese metaphors, metaphorical richness and colorof the author's view of love have been revealed.
