The day of resurrection and the signs thereof have attracted the attention of the poets and authors of divan literature. That the expectation of resurrection persisted among the people is attested to by the production of illustrated copies of anonymous works. Various poetic and prose works have been produced that describe and depict the period from death to resurrection, that is, the realm of transition, as well as works that describe and depict heaven, hell and the day of judgment with its signs. This paper deals with the works of authors and poets, who lived between the thirteenth and eighteenth centuries and who either directly described this theme or depicted it by way of allusion and metaphor.
