An analytical novelist Peyami Safa, looks at the event and the material with a psychological care. The consciousness of the characters are formed by the unconscious. In doing so, he uses the contemporary accounts of the psychoanalysis. Especially the free association that Sigmund Freud finds has an important place in the novel.
