Hasan Mellah yahut Sır İçinde Esrâr and Zeyl-i Hasan Mellâh yahut Sır
İçinde Esrâr written by Ahmet Mithat Efendi in 1875 are the first samples of Turkish
literature. They are poliphonic novels. Ahmet Mithat Efendi who likes to handle
historical material at fictional atmosphere has managed to immortalize characters
created by him in his novels. DominicoBadia who sereal name is Domingo Badia Y
Leblich is one of these memorable characters that makes spying by travel and plans
to transform the country’s rulings by creating internal chaos. Inspired byFenelon’s
Telemaque and Alexander Dumas Pere’s The Count of Monte Cristo novels, Ahmet
Mithat Efendi puts forth the native form of Telemakhos by protagonist Hasan Mellah,
on the other hand, carries political struggles in Europe, Africa and Middle East to his
novel thanks to the pursuit of Domingo Badia Y Leblich. He is the antagonist of the
novel and he is a member of Carbonari community, which is the inspiration source
of Yeni Osmanlılar community, according to the historic sources. Domingo Badia Y
Leblich’s being a member of Carbonari will form the focus of our study. In our work,
we will assess the structure of Carbonari community and the view of the novelist to
this community by taking into considerationof the functional property of the novel.
