Some Issues Concerned with Composition of Tatabbu and Nazira in Khukand Literary Circle


Okhunjohnova N. R.


The article dwells on the analysis of the problem dealing with poetical imitation of a pattern having different nominations in the history of the Persian-Tajik literature specifying the devices used by poets: tatabbu, nazirapayravi, tarikai dar tarzi, dar ravishi and etc.

In this aspect the author of the article analyzes the creation of the bilingual poet (zullisonain) Amir Umarkhon who belonged to Khukand literary circle. She asserts that the compositions of payravi and tatabbu obtained a new impulse at the end of the XVIII-th and the beginning of the XIX-th centuries. Most of all Khukand poets composed tatabbus in imitation of such Persian-Tajik men-of-letters as Abdurahmon Djami, Soib Tabrezi, Mirzo Abdulkodir Bedil and Amir Umarkhon; the latter being a governor of Khukand khanate. The author of the article conducts a detailed analysis comparing responsive gazels written in imitation to patterns with the latters, she evaluates properly innovational and original aspects of the devices resorted to.
