The inherent humane need for narration plays a determining role in the emergence of those literary texts which are based on the principle of narration. The modern appearances of the texts that are based on this principle also bring along the diversity of literary genres. As the most voluminous of the literary texts based on the principle of narration, a novel basically possesses many structural elements. These structures have a certain position on their own, while they also concretise a plenary structural manifestation that expands from the individuality of the parts that build a text towards the whole, and which is suitable for commentary. This manifestation constitutes the entirety of the structural elements that bring a novel text into existence. Erdal Öz, who wrote modern Turkish novels in the Republican period, sets the plot of his novel titled Odalarda (“in rooms”) on an anonymous protagonist, and on rooms that give the impression of a labyrinthine space. The novel, in which the various elements that bring the human into existence, and the disunity of these elements are described in a psychological dimension, creates, in every sense, the defragmentation of these divided parts. Thus, the novel’s plot of structural elements is focused on the context of space and characters. Consideration of the units that build the genre of novel including time, the name-content relationship, and perspective will enable a structural analysis of this work. The current study will approach Odalarda by Erdal Öz in terms of novel technique, and examine its structural elements. A structural analysis of the novel will be carried out with a perspective identified from of the approaches of various novel theorists.
