Ornate prose is one of the main types of prose in the classical Turkish literature. The impressive power of poetry, the leading literary genre of the period, also influenced prose. Ornate prose, characterized by flashy metaphors, various literary arts, elaborated language, predominant internal rhyme (seci), harmonious and rhythmic resonance, emerged as the result of this influence. The first example of ornate prose in the classical Turkish literature is the 15th-century `Tazarruname' by Sinan Pasha. Other representatives of this prose are Fuzuli, Veysi, Nergisi, to name just a few. In the Russian literature, the origins of ornate prose were first seen in the 15th century in such hagiographies as Life of Stefan of Perm and Life of Sergius of Radonezh by Epiphanius the Wise. Although its origins in the Russian literature date back to the 15th century, the ornate prose reappeared as a result of the search for new styles starting with neorealism in the 1920s. This study sets out to clarify the emergence of ornate prose in the Turkish and Russian literatures, its developmental stages, stylistic features, common aspects, and differences comparatively from the general to the specific. In this context, when the rhetoric and semantic arts and rhymes in the pieces belonging to various works belonging to the ornate prose were analyzed, deep similarities were observed in the ornate samples of both literature and it was determined that the artistic expression that is used was carried out mainly based on the aesthetic concerns of the artists.
