This study examines the influence of the Balkan Wars on the formation of Turkish nationalism through examples from the youth poems of Nazim Hikmet. The traces of the traumas created by the spatial and cultural consequences of the Balkan Wars on the Turkish intellectuals of the postwar period have been tried to be interpreted through literary works. In this context, inferences were made through quotations from Nazim Hikmet's poems written between 1913 and 1930.
