Assoc. Professor Ulugbek Abduvahab on Yalcinkaya’s poetry:

 

“When the poet is troubled, does he seek for a stronghold in poetry with the hope of salvation? That is just what you feel when you read Yalcinkaya’s poetry the first time.”

 

“Even if we read Yalcinkaya’s poetry for the first time, it sounds familiar to us.”
