Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) enables a researcher to analyse a text to find the engagement of language to hegemony and ideology. Major aim of this study is to make the critical discourse analysis of Yaşar Kemal’s İnce Memed I to reveal its hegemonical and ideological components. It is also aimed to show how the discourse constructs hegemony and how this hegemony is being broken by analysing the textual features and intertextual relations within the novel. Yaşar Kemal’s novel, which is an example of epic tradition, displays social inequality between the oppressor and the oppressed. When social status changes, linguistic preferences alter. The intertextual references in the novel helps a researcher to understand the true nature of the work in which the class struggle between the working class and the ruling class takes place. Another aim of the study is to critically analyse the socio-cultural and historical context of the novel.
