The basis for the text to appear as a semantic whole, which is defined as a communicative structure built by many linguistic units with great harmony, is cohesion and coherence, two basic criteria that complement each other. While cohesion is the network of grammatical and semantic relations between sentences at the text level, coherence is the name of the network of relations based on meaning and logic surrounding the text. In this study, it is aimed to show how cohesion and coherence criteria are realized in a modern story where the narrative is interrupted by stream of consciousness and flashbacks, apart from the chronological time understanding. In Yusuf Atılgan's story called Tutku, the elements of cohesion were determined and exemplified, and the appearances of coherence were determined. Although the expression technique used in the text makes it difficult to establish cohesive relations between some sentences, the meaning and logical order established by another criterion that constructs the text has enabled the structure to be perceived as a whole. Cohesion and coherence are two criteria of textuality that complement each other and determine the integrity of the text. This assertion has been confirmed in the analyzed text. The decisive effect of cohesion elements such as personal suffixes, tense, aspect, modal suffixes, ellipsis, and personal pronoun on the formation of the text's coherence has been shown.
