Keywords: Historical novel,the relationship between historicalliterary texts,Mustafa Necati Sepetçioğlu,national romantic feelings


In this study I deal with the relations between history, which is a true life reality, and fictional contexts. The message of fictional literary text to the reader that is built on the basis of historical knowledge is also discussed. I try to find out how the reader's memory is expected to be organised in Mustafa Necati Sepetçioğlu's novel named The Lock. Sepetçioğlu's way of perceptions in his messages is also discussed.
