ABSTRACT



Cultural memory spaces are concrete indicators of inter-generational cultural continuity and evolvement through the ages. The remarkable works of artists, writers and poets who stand out in their own ages can also be considered as cultural memory spaces. The forms of behavior that collective consciousness produce against events and phenomena and the perspectives derived from the culture are reflected in these works by aestheticizing with cultural accumulation. This reflection mostly shows not literal but a figurative attribute. These kinds of works also carry out a cultural transfer by preserving the associations and meanings in the historical layer with basic elements of the social mind, current mental elements and discourse at various periods of history.In this framework, Mahtumkulu Firâkî's divan, which was an outstanding work of 18th century Turkmen literature and addressed beyond the centuries, is considered and examined as a cultural memory space.
