When interpreting the works of Suat Derviş, who has become one of the names that literature researchers have emphasized, in recent years, it is necessary to mention his journalist identity that shaped his view of life and his understanding of art and his articles in newspapers. Among these articles, especially the interviews he published in newspapers are important. It is possible to say that Suat Derviş, as a journalist, carried the events he saw, the people he met, to his interviews, and therefore he used these interviews many times in his fictional works, both when creating the characters and shaping the event. Through these interviews, which shaped both his journalist identity and his artistic imagination, the author, who went down to the back streets of İstanbul, used the experiences he gained through these interviews as material in his works. In this context, the novel Fosforlu Cevriye, which was first serialized in the newspaper Gece Postası in 1945, is also a novel written based on Suat Derviş's interviews. Therefore, this article will primarily focus on the journalist identity of Suat Derviş, who has been a journalist for many years, and then Fosforlu Cevriye will be interpreted within the framework of the author's interviews.
