Garip (Turkish: strange or peculiar) was a group of Turkish poets. Also known as I. New Movement.

It was composed of Orhan Veli, Oktay Rifat and Melih Cevdet, who had been friends since high school. They made their mark with a 1941 joint collection entitled Garip. After O.Veli's death in 1950, the two remaining friends developed their individual styles and began to write novels and theater pieces as well. O.Rifat and M.Cevdet attended to the 2. New Movement in following years.

The group's poems were published in a number of literary magazine, especially Varlık (Existence) and Yaprak (Leaf). The former is a country-wide spread magazine, while the latter was a bundle-of-few-pages literary magazine which was prepared, edited and distributed by Garip poets until the sudden death of Orhan Veli at the age of thirty six.

The name Garip symbolized a break with the conventional (considered decadent) style of Turkish poetry and literature. Garip poets used vernacular speech and surrealist elements in their poems.
