Özet

The dialectic image is an important fictional structure that determines and shapes the specific aesthetic nature and narrative characteristics of literary text. An author's consciousness as a producer provides a fictional mediation between image and reality. With this fictional mediation, the forms of reality are transformed by the author through images. The transformation process manifests itself in the fictional structure. Dialectic images that determine the narrative characteristics and unique specificity of literary text are highlighted with this transformation process. Dialectic images are not structures exempt from ideology and the author's intention in literary text. In this sense, they have the feature of being a fictional tool that determines the various orientations and central points of literary texts.
