Birth: Feb. 2, 1852
Death: Apr. 12, 1937

Abdülhak Hâmid Tarhan was an early 20th century Turkish playwright and poet

He was one of the leading lights of the Turkish Romatic period. His first brush with controversy occurred on the publishing of his play Nesteren in Paris. It depicted a rebellion against a tyrannical ruler, and the actual ruler of Turkey at that time, Sultan Abdulhamid was so upset by it that he had the playwright fired from his government job

Abdulhak Hamid is known in Turkish literature as "Şair-i Azam" (The Grand Poet) and "Dahi-i Azam" (The Grand Genius)
