Mehmet Sitki Akozan (1890 - ) is a forgotten poet in our literature. He is a poet known with his work named Kullukname. His biography is not included in some leading resources. His book named Dîvânçe-i Şinâer, which includes humorous - critical poems, was published with Ottoman alphabet and not transferred into new letters. Akozan has brought together his poetical pieces which he published in the humor newspapers of his period, in this work. Dîvânçe-i Şinâver was published in Istanbul in 1330/1914 as a publication of Cemiyet Library. The published has included Dîvânçe in a series titled "Kütübhane-i Mizâhdan" In his three letters included in Dîvânçe, he included some expressions targeting the young poets who tend for the new understanding of poetry of 1910s, in particular the members of Edebiyat-i Cedîde and Fecr-i Âtî. The style here is mainly a way of insulting through humor.
