Halid Ziya Uşaklıgil was born in Istanbul in 1867. He went to primary school and then attended the secondary school Fatih Rustiyesi in the same city. His family moved to Izmir in 1879. He completed his secondary education in Izmir. He later attended a Christian school to learn French where he completed his first translation works.
Uşaklıgil founded the newspaper Hikmet in 1886. After 1896 his works were published in the Turkish literary journal Servet-i fünûn, known for its adoption of European literary styles.
When his novel Kırık Hayatlar (Broken Lives) was censored by the Ottoman Regime in 1901 he stopped publishing novels. Broken Lives could only be published in 1923 after the creation of modern Turkey.
Uşaklıgil's style is based closely on French Romanticism and most of his novels deal with unfulfilled love. His work is distinguished from contemporary Turkish literature by its more concrete form and creates its own artistic language through the use of Persian and Arabic loanwords.
