The term nouevau roman (new novel) appeared in France after 1950. It is referred to as postmodern fiction in Britain. Divergence from the traditional fiction began with Marcel Proust’s novel ‘Swann’s Way’ published in 1913, with the novel ‘The Modification’ published by Michel Butor in 1957 came most prominent dissociation. In 1916, Tristan Tzara, Romanian-born French poet and writer , founded dadaist literature movement in France. Dadaism rejects all the pre-existing fictional genres . The fact that in 1924, Andre Breton wrote the Manifesto of Surrealism and Louis Aragon signed it put an end to dadaism,and there appeared surrealism. J.P Sartre articulated the theory of existentialist literature movement in 1939.Thus, the age of surrealism completely closed and there came existentialism .’Nauesa’, the novel written by Sartre in 1938 and ‘The Stranger’ written by A. Camus in 1942 are the best examples of existentialism. ‘ The Erasers’, the novel of Alain Robbe -Grillet published in 1953 and ‘ La Modification’ written by M.Butor in 1957 are sample novels of nouveau roman .In nouveau roman , the unity of subject and succession of events are not essential elements

When mentioned about the travel books over Istanbul and travels to Istanbul, first things to come into mind are the travel books of Western travelers. In fact this misunderstanding has somewhat occupied our minds. We have focused on the western documents of Istanbul as recent wonderers of Istanbul. When we look at the travel books giving information about Istanbul, first of them is Ibni Batuta's "Travel Book" in 14th century. In Roman Era , he was sent to Istanbul as an ambassador and as an observer and with Arabian travelers notes, it carries rich information. Harun Ibni Yahya, lived in the late 9th century and in the very beginning of the 10th century, states that there were many Turk and Caspian youngs with golden shields and spears in ceremonies while telling us about the Caspian Empire visiting Hagia Sophia.
