He especially focused on the art of poetry and Heidegger's approach to poetry; “According to him, the basic word of man is poetry. Because people are living, being in the world, establishing their relationship with other people through language. The basic meaning relationship between the language he lives in and the existence he lives in (historically) in all activities of man arises in poetry. Linguistic organizations called “poetry”, which have been seen in various forms throughout the entire known history of man, are the products of human orientation that try to reveal (express) this basic relationship. Heidegger tries to achieve this, to re-understand (interpret), to re-grasp one's relationship with the world and other insects. ” explained in words.
